You Can’t Show My Face

Knutte Wester | 23 min | Sweden
Original title:
Director: Knutte Wester
Year: 2021
Duration: 23 min
Country: Sweden
Subtitles: English

Tehran’s soundscape is transformed into forbidden beats, people singing and young people openly rhyming their inner feelings. They sing about a society that has turned it’s backs on them – because here the streets belong to the government and not the people. The young people carry a dream that the streets will belong to them once again.
Knutte Wester (Horungen, 2017 and Here is the border, 2016) is back with a new film, where he has met activists on the streets of Tehran who have allowed him to film – as long as he doesn’t show their faces.

After the screening, Knutte Wester is on site to answer questions and tell a little more about the work on the film.
