Tehran-Geles - Laureat Videoformes 2015

Tehran nocturnal signs are embedded on aerial images from Los Angeles. During this flight, phone records tell us memories that took place in Tehran. These stories take us back to the past of this city. In the 70s and 80s, the reality of American life was projected on the social and urban society of the city. Music, clothes, cars, highways and boulevards echoed this lifestyle. With the revolution that period ended.

Just like science-fiction films, where the present of a city is projected in the future, this video projects Tehran’s past in the present, using Los Angeles as a backdrop.
