Bitter Dream and Scheherazade
In conjunction with the exhibition Global/Local 1960–2015: Six Artists from Iran
Bitter Dream (Iran, 2004, 87 min.) is an original and humorous satire that overlaps documentary with fiction. Director Mehrnoush Aliaghaei’s Scheherazade (USA, 2014, 15 min.) depicts a series of actresses’ encounter with the odd and mysterious methods of a casting director.
