HSP: There Is No Escape From The Terrors Of The Mind (120 Minutes DSLR Super8mm VHS Stereo Colour Ireland Iran UK Oman 2013)

Rouzbeh Rashidi (Tehran, 1980) is an Iranian independent filmmaker. He has been making films since 2000 when he founded the Experimental Film Society in Tehran. Since then, he has worked completely apart from any mainstream conceptions of filmmaking. He strives to escape the stereotypes of conventional storytelling and instead roots his cinematic style in a poetic interaction of image and sound. He generally eschews scriptwriting, seeing the process of making moving images as exploration rather than illustration. His work is also deeply engaged with film history.Rouzbeh Rashidi is the recipient of the 2011 and 2013 Arts Council of Ireland Film Project Award for his experimental feature film HE and Homo Sapiens Project.
