My Worst Enemy, Mehran Tamadon

As an experiment, Mehran Tamadon asks exiled Iranians to interrogate him as if they were an agent of the Islamic Republic. A renowned actor with first-hand knowledge of such mistreatment takes up the challenge. The violent experience of putting themselves in the torturer’s head confronts them with their own limits and the ambivalence of the project itself.

SaskTel Theatre

Remai Modern is pleased to partner with Paivand to present the Saskatoon iteration of the Diaspora Film Festival (DFF), founded in Toronto by Shahram Tabe.

The Diaspora Film Festival (DFF) provides audiences with an opportunity to experience the cultural mosaic of the present world through the medium of cinema. Diaspora refers to the dispersion and migration of a people from their homeland and the communities they form in new lands. The DFF explores themes of migration, immigration, and cultural diversity by showcasing works of both established and emerging filmmakers. The festival pays special attention to independent Canadian filmmakers from ethnic minorities.

DFF-Saskatoon will have its opening screening at 7 PM on Friday November 3, followed by three screenings on Saturday November 4.
