Misplaced Analogy (Iran) by Kasra Yazdani
I tried to compartmentalize the narrative that I created into pieces and handed it over to my friends so they could put it together one by one and have their own stories. 25 different films were produced. Some of the altered stories inspired by the 25 individuals were actually much more interesting than my narrative. Surprisingly, the stories had many similarities; strangely enough, even some of the scenes were arranged in exactly the same order. This film is the result of those 25 films. texts were added later.
