Limbo Farid Yahaghi

Films index A to Z

“Don’t know where I belong. Though longing to move forward, my memories are dragging me back” six months, from April 10, 2019 to November 18, 2018. With a short but incredibly dense video montage, Iranian artist Farid Yahaghi invites us to share his experience of immigrating to Canada, in reverse. By appropriating the selfie aesthetic, accompanied by diary-style texts and voiceovers connecting different times through lip-syncing, Yahaghi conveys the existential confusion of being uprooted, while inviting viewers to “press pause” to enter his experience of doubt and hope, shot by shot. A memorable autobiographical work.

Presented by Canada Media Fund , Bell Media and Québec/Canada XR in collaboration with MUTEK and le labdoc (Laboratoire de recherche sur les pratiques audiovisuelles documentaires (labdoc) de l'UQAM. Québec/Canada XR is an initiative supported by Canada Council for the Arts | Conseil des arts du Canada & Culture et Communications Québec
