With many difficult subjects, animation can depict what film cannot. Maryam has found her metier in animation and even though she only graduated a short while ago, she has already been shown in several international galleries and completed a residency in Austria.
Maryam’s films touch on the innocence of youth, the trivia of everyday life in an Iranian setting of peaceful times at war, amongst other things.
We listen to music by Abjeez (slang for sister in Persian), discuss living away from your home town, animation as a trade, films in general, The Girl With the Short Hair (Maryam’s film) and more.
