Nariman Massoumi’s short film Baba 1989 screens at dokumentART film festival

21 November 2016

On Saturday 12th November, Dr. Nariman Massoumi's short film Baba 1989 (2016, 13 min) was screened at the dokumentART European Festival Documentaries, Neubrandenburg, Germany in the European Competition block Migrants, Rebels and Refugees, followed by a Q & A with the filmmaker.

The short film combines family testimony with home video to convey Massoumi’s own father’s experience of arriving in Britain in 1989 from Germany after four years of separation from the rest of the family.

It constitutes one output from Dr. Massoumi’s practice-as-research thesis into diasporic, domestic ethnography (University of Bristol, 2016).
