Glass Eye Ciné Mania Akbari’s ciné-letter film.
Life May Be’ is a cinematic correspondence between Irish filmmaker Mark Cousins and Iranian filmmaker Mania Akbari, made over the last year, during which time the two filmmakers had no in-person contact. Essayistic but extremely intimate in nature, each filmed ‘letter’ delves into themes relevant to their personal and creative lives (e.g. exile, representation, how we approach the body), becoming more complex as each letter responds to the former and spirals off in new directions.
Followed by Iranian cuisine and music at the Maple Leaf Social Club.
£6 film only, £9 film and buffet. Entrance fee will be donated to a charity of Mark’s choice.
A real masterpiece of puppetry and special effects, an absolutely gorgeous children’s fantasy movie.Chicago Tribune
