19-06-2019 12:00:00 19-06-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Born in Evin | 6:15 PM When she was 12 years old, the actress and filmmaker Maryam Zaree found out that she was one of a number of babies born inside Evin, Iran's most notorious political prison. Zaree's parents were imprisoned shortly after Ayatollah Khomeini came to power in 1979, a period in which tens of thousands of political dissidents were arrested and tortured. With Born in Evin, she confronts decades of silence in her family and embarks on an exploration into the circumstances of her birth. On this vulnerable, lyrical journey Zaree considers the impact of trauma on the bodies and souls of survivors and their children, leading her to question how her generation can relate to their own history while also respecting the people they love who prefer to heal in silence. Winner Best Film, Perspektive Deutsches Kino Programme, Berlinale 2019. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=384813 Francesca Beale Theatre Francesca Beale Theatre
