The Negotiation

Azin Feizabadi

38'

2010

A diverse group of actors come together on a film set analogous to the architecture of the UN Security Council – a roundtable. The script: an unnamed visual/textual three-act drama concerning an undefined revolutionary situation. Within the working process there is directing, reading, rehearsal and embodiment, through which the actors interpret their real and scripted characters. The borders between fictional and factual histories, individual and collective desires, projections and biographical backgrounds become increasingly blurry. Only commented from afar by an authoritarian narrator, the actors discuss, improvise and negotiate between language and the need for action.
