Tehran Has No More Pomegranates!
(Massoud Bakhshi, Iran, 2006, 68')

Truth and fabrication, documentary and fiction – the line gets blurred in Massoud Bakhshi’s award-winning musical film Tehran has No More Pomegranates! (2006). Building his narrative from Tehran’s erection in 1241 BC to its rise as the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Bakhshi’s rendition is both humorous and critical in its portrayal of contemporary Iranian life. Knowing the complexities of representing the ever-expanding and shifting city that Tehran is, Bakhshi makes no effort to provide an objective view. Juxtaposing images of the past from archival films with images Bakhshi collected in the five years that lead to his film, Bakhshi intelligently weaves together an irony-filled city portrait of Tehran.

With a lecture “Old” Images of Iran Resurfaced: The Case of Tehran Has No More Pomegranates! (2006) by Maral Mohsenin (University of Lausanne/UvA)
