On sale dates & times
An undressed woman waiting to be looked over by a doctor in her hospital room.

A meeting of cinema and sculpture investigates remembrance and reconstruction, putting the trauma of the body in conversation with collective memory.

Written and directed by London-based Iranian filmmaker Mania Akbari and her partner, British sculptor Douglas White, A Moon For My Father weaves a poetic tapestry from years of written and filmed correspondence between the pair. 

Family photographs, archival footage and imagery from White’s artwork intermix with documentary footage from Mania’s journey through cancer and pregnancy, connecting images and ideas in a dream-associative logic. Mixing the personal with the political through the visceral and conceptual engagement with the body, the film is an uncompromising, intimate work of artistic expression.

To follow, Mania and Douglas will be in conversation with Peter Bradshaw.
