A Sense of Place

In 1972, George Seddon wrote “Sense of Place”, a landmark environmental study that introduced the term to the field of landscape and environmental design, inviting close examination of the dynamics between human land use and the natural environment. In 2020, Afsun Moshiry picked up on the theme and collaborated with the Wim Wenders Foundation on creating a multi-layered project of the same title. In this realm, Iranian filmmakers embarked on exploring their own cinematic definitions of “a Sense of Place”, resulting in eclectic and diverse films.

For its closing session, the FIFEQ invites you to discover four of these films: Hollow, Shadowless: In Transit, Maltournée, and Great are the Eyes of a Dead Father.
