MEDIA CITY FILM FESTIVAL 2018: CHOOKA, BY FARAZ & PARASTOO ANOUSHAHPOUR AND RYAN FERKO
By Ivonne Sheen
In Susan Sontag’s famous book, On Photography, she argues that we are living in Plato’s cave made out of reproducible images, questioning about our visual imaginaries, which are not only fed by concrete experience, but also by reproduced images. This argument can be read in Parastoo Anoushahpour, Faraz Anoushahpour, Ryan Ferko’s refined film Chooka (2018), which was part of the Media City Film Festival’s International Competition.
