Short Clip from Tea House

Tea House, Super8, B/W, Sound, 4 min, 2003

My apartment in Berkeley, in the early 90’s  had a small kitchen with a window, my own tea house.

Memories are called upon in the shiftings of focus, memories are densely packed in the sound track borrowed from Nar-O-Ney (an Iranian film of the 80's about memory) and chemical residue left on the film hint the film's memory of its own birth.

Tea House is a short film about memory. It was made in 1993 and it was finally exhibited in 2003, when itself had become a memory.
