7 Sides of a Cylinder PastThursday, May 28, 2015 ,
The Cyrus Cylinder, an ancient artefact associated with the first Persian king, was the centerpiece of a British Museum exhibition that toured the United States in 2013. Believed by some to be the first declaration of human rights, the cylinder was exhibited in five major museums in five cities where the Iranian diaspora have established communities. Seven young Iranian filmmakers were invited to respond to this exercise in cultural diplomacy and explain what this object from their ancient history means to them and their communities today.
7 Sides of a Cylinder is a multivocal experimental film, comprised of 7 short, contemplative films made by filmmakers along the route of this historic tour, in Washington DC, Houston, New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles with the addition of London, the physical home of the cylinder and Tehran, its spiritual home.
