“Weavers of Imagination” goes to American festival
Art and Experience: Iranian filmmaker Sadeq Jafari’s acclaimed documentary “Weavers of Imagination” will be competing at the American Psychological Association Film Festival during August.
The documentary is about the work of a group of carpet weavers in Iran who weave in an unconventional way: using Braille to guide their work. These weavers are sightless, and their work has brought additional purpose to their lives, which have become interwoven as well, as they celebrate triumphs and milestones together.
The festival will take place in Washington from August 9 to 12.
Produced at Iran’s Documentary and Experimental Film Center, “Weavers of Imagination” has been acclaimed at several international events.
The film won the best foreign-language documentary award at the Cardiff International Film Festival in Wales in October 2017. It also won the best short film award at the Derby Film Festival in the UK in May 2018.
