Volatile Stillness

Festival Year:
Director: Shahireh Sharif
Producer: Shahireh Sharif
Screenwriter: Shahireh Sharif

Volatile Stillness is a short burst of visual and audio poetry experience. It explores movement as the source of life, love, beauty and creativity. Volatile Stillness expresses the unstable nature of the lack of motion. Variables such as place of birth, class division and gender are often used to condemn people to a predefined rigid way of life. Volatile Stillness with subtle hints displays a paradoxical account. Contrary to common belief, movement out and away from the sources of prejudice is our right. Our life and serenity depends on movement. Stillness, even assuming it is possible on a moving planet, is extremely volatile in nature.
Shots are taken in Manchester, London and Mashhad.
