Lines of Exile

Festival Year:
Director: Eric Patrick
Producer: Eric Patrick
Screenwriter: Hamid Naficy

Over the last half century, Persian film scholar Hamid Naficy has created a unique cultural index of the evolution of cultural theory. Rather than writing traditional notes during the countless lectures he has attended, he draws caricatures of the speakers, personifying their subject matter in the drawings. In this intimate portrait, his drawings are animated while he recounts the transformation of scholarship in film, cultural theory, diaspora, and exile.
