The title of the Shirin Neshat short film has been revealed in this new German Interview magazine piece with Neshat. She confirms the suspicion that the short film is for a Dior video installation and adds that the film is about a woman losing her mind.
Sounds interesting…although it could just as easily be awful. No clues on when we might get to see it though.
NESHAT: I just cut a video that I shot with Natalie Portman, then I turn back to my photographic works to which are concerned with something else, and then I prepare another new feature film before. I do not even know how that’s going to do one thing. But I hardly know people who just – let’s say – are authors. I like the variety.
INTERVIEW: What is a video with Natalie Portman?
NESHAT: There is a video installation for Dior titled “Through The Abyss”. No advertising film, but a short, about ten minutes almost silent film. A working between dream, fantasy and fiction with a woman who suffers a nervous breakdown.
INTERVIEW: What hope does not describe your current state of mind. What appeals to the jury work?
Thanks to Angelina!
