Maryam Tafakory (b. Shiraz, Iran) is an artist-filmmaker based in London. Her work draws on the notion of ‘personal as political’ in a fractured narrative that involves a subtle negotiation between factual and fiction, exploring allegorical forms of visual narrative, using abstracted, symbolic and textual motifs and their on-screen representation. Part performance, her work draws on womanhood and rites of passage interweaving poetry, (self)-censorship and religion, combining a formal minimalist syntax and figurative mode of representation. Her work has been exhibited internationally including at Rotterdam IFFR, Edinburgh EIFF, Zurich Film Festival, Melbourne MIFF, ZINEBI, Hamburg IKFF, ICA London, BFI London, Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, Ji.hlava IDFF, Barbican Centre London, New York UnionDocs, and BBC Three. She has received several awards for her films including Best Short Film at Dokumenta-Madrid.
