Lecture Performance "UCHRONIA"
Our alumno Azin Feizabadi presents a film reading with his film “UCHRONIA” at the Microscope Gallery in New York.
Filmmaker Azin Feizabadi will perform a film reading that stages his forthcoming film as an intimate lecture-performance. In this performance, Azin will read from the script of “UCHRONIA” while screening selected scenes, sounds, and passages from the film. A contemporary interpretation of the ancient middle eastern love saga of Layla & Majnun, “UCHRONIA” depicts two disembodied, Dark Matter aliens emigrating from the furthest parts of the universe to planet 52°N,13°E: Berlin in Germany. Earth offers the opportunity to incarnate into human bodies, dangling the promise of finally realizing the union they have traveled so far to achieve. But the bodies they have chosen are freighted with their own physical, social, and philosophical baggage, deferring the consummation of their love and entangling them in a series of terrestrial problems they struggle to understand. ”UCHRONIA” is a feature length fiction/documentary film, which went into production in 2015 and has a release date set for January 2018.
