Itenerant Movies #3: Iron Island

Hoezo in Kino

The new program called Cinema Architecture 2017-18: ITINERANT MOVIES will kick off in June at KINO Rotterdam. ITINERANT MOVIES #3 is focused on the topic of The Sea. All the selected films are shot in a single vehicle/vector that describes trajectories and journeys. With their deliberate visual restriction, the narrative of single-set films depends on the tension between the inside (vehicle) and the outside space (landscape).

Iron Island entirely takes place on an abandoned oil tanker anchored offshore the Persian Gulf seaport of Bandar Abbas. The captain, a ‘generous dictator’, operates this ‘iron island’ as a sort of live-in commune where the inhabitants, Sunni Arab minority that lives in this part of Iran, can find a job to survive. This ‘island’ can be considered a microcosm where the minorities are governed by the autocratic power.
