Synopsis

It’s true. Wedding: A Film has a personal narrative but I hope you’ll find part of your life mirrored in my life story. A long part of the film is dedicated to my fantasy of marriage from childhood to my very wedding day. A fantasy I’d safely drawn out of war, social unrest and economic hardships. Even though fantasies are formed in a local context, they’re ultimately similar. Everyone lives with a fantasy of happiness; most do with one of a happy marriage. And Film is perhaps the best mirror to man’s fantasies. So I tried to re-watch wedding films. And what struck me as weird was their peculiar syntax. They were devoid of the variety in people’s expectations. They were films barely surviving a couple of days and then ready to be disposed. Just before my divorce, I looked back at my own wedding film. And this film is more about the images that formed in my mind after watching those films. I had never seen life so much resembling a film. A badly-edited one. (Mohammadreza FARZAD)
