KINOSKOP 2021 :JURY MEMBERS
Rouzbeh Rashidi (born in Tehran, 1980) is an Iranian-Irish filmmaker. He has been making films since 2000, at which time he founded the Experimental Film Society in Tehran.
Rashidi has always worked entirely away from mainstream conceptions of filmmaking, striving to escape conventional storytelling stereotypes.
Instead, he roots his cinematic style in a poetic interaction of image and sound. He generally eschews scriptwriting, seeing the process of making moving images as exploration rather than illustration.
His work is deeply engaged with film history, and primarily concerned with mysticism, philosophy, esotericism, cosmology, phenomenology, and hauntology.
The films are wildly experimental and often surrealist, magical realist, and mysterious, and have been associated with the Remodernist movement.
They are unified by his oneiric imagination, idiosyncratic working methods, and the dreamlike experience of watching them.
