Slowly Forgetting Your Faces

چهره‌هایتان رو به فراموشی است

“I am slowly forgetting your faces,” writes the eldest brother from Iran to his younger siblings in Germany. These left the war and revolution in their homeland a long time ago. Together with his father and uncle, director Daniel Asadi Faezi explores the history of their family. What remains from the time of the revolution are the letters that the young men wrote to each other between the two countries. For 30 years, they have not read these letters. They tell the story of a family divided by politics and religion and open a projection screen for past images.
