A Reason to Talk
Is this a story of extremes, of bi-cultural upbringing, or is it simply the story of all mothers and daughters?
Sachli Gholamalizad, a young Belgian actress of Iranian descent, questions her troubled relationship with her mother. Through fusing together recordings, diary excerpts, memories, novels and soundscapes from both Belgium and Iran, Sachli dives into her family’s history and the contradictions in the lives of three women, confronting both her mother and grandmother in a thrilling and unruly multimedia performance.
