While Oskouee’s doc ‘Sunless Shadows’ will compete at the 19th edition of the Finnish film event, he will also hold an open master class in which he will talk about ‘his working methods and filmmaking philosophy’, according to the event’s official website.
Some clips of four of the director’s documentaries which are ‘My Mother’s Home Lagoon’, ‘Nose, Iranian Style’, ‘The Other Side of Burka’ and ‘The Last Days of Winter’ will be presented in the class as well.
Born in 1969, Oskouee is a photographer, researcher and presenter as well as a filmmaker. His filmmaking career is a big success as his works have attended over 500 film events, the result of which has been more that 120 international awards.
