25-02-2018 12:00:00 25-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Nose, Iranian Style | 6:30 PM (DAMAGH BE SABKE IRANI) Starting out by contrasting brutal footage of the Iran-Iraq War with the posh ski resort now standing where many of its battles took place, NOSE, IRANIAN STYLE documents a generation in search of an identity, and often resorting to plastic surgery as a means to express itself. Per capita, Iran is the plastic surgery capital of the world. Oskouei talks to members of the film industry, intellectuals, and ordinary people who are planning to get nose jobs for various reasons. Rather than simply condemning the prevalence of plastic surgery – although it's clear that the director is alarmed by the phenomenon – Oskouei suggests that it reflects a void created by an empty pop culture, rigid religious dictates, and a lack of real options for Iranian youth. He focuses on both men and women who have gone under the knife, or wish to do so. In NOSE, IRANIAN STYLE, Oskouei depicts people who are far more privileged than the subjects of his trilogy about teenagers and prison, but whose lives seem just as troubled beneath the surface. Preceded by: MARYAM OF HENGAM ISLAND / MARYAM JAZIREHYE HENGAM (2005, 26 min, digital. In Farsi with English subtitles.) http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=279983 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
