In addition to the film from 1999, we present Rendezvous with Mokarrameh a new film by Ebrahim Mokhtari, which was edited specifically for Doku.Arts and which pictures the ‘afterlife’ of the painter.
After her death at the age of 77, Mokarrameh was buried in the courtyard of her house, which has now become a museum. On her birthday, people, women, men and children come to her house and spontaneously unleash their interest in painting by painting on paper, wood and stones. Mokhtari filmed several of these occasions.
