QIRMIZI a short film part of an investigation into the weight of context on an individual’s perception of personal identity and freedom, with the participation of artists and individuals from Azerbaijan, France, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Russia, South Korea, Turkey, UK and the USA. My original idea was to portray a vision of a kind of utopia where harmony is temporarily possible in the shadows of entrenched geopolitical contexts.
