Rise of the Synths

The Rise Of The Synths is the story of a group of music composers from different countries who in the mid 2000’s, unknown to each other but with the help of Myspace, spontaneously created an underground music scene known as Synthwave. It was the first time the Internet gave birth to a real music scene. Synthwave can be described as music that uses an electronic modern composition heavily inspired by the soundtracks of cinema, TV and video games from 1980’s pop culture. Through the story of Synthwave, the film explores these questions: “Why now, this nostalgia for the 80s? Where does it come from and what will become of it?” There is a secret world out there, populated by some of the last rebels on the Internet, and it’s happening now.

1001 Nights Apart

After the revolution of 1979, the gap widened between Iranians in Iran and Iranians abroad. Almost an entire generation left the country. Many were forced into exile. The next generations born after the revolution in Iran knew nothing about their past or they were completely apathetic about it. A large part of Iranian history was destroyed or burnt and what was left for the new generations was an invented history. It is still difficult to discern the lies from the truth. Many Iranians hid their true identities out of fear. Dancers were among these. Stories and histories were left untold, and the old and new generations remained total strangers. This gap grew over the past 40 years. The Tale of Scheherazade is a ballet, portraying a nation and performed and choreographed in two different eras by two completely separate generations of Iranian dancers and inspired by the famous story of Scheherazade in the 1001 Nights. As the film progresses, both groups become Scheherazade the story-teller and tell their own stories for the first time.
