20 – A PROJECT FOR JAFAR PANAHI AND FREEDOM

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi was deeply shocked by the news about Panahi's arrest. In the light of these grotesque verdicts he sought to overcome his initial helplessness by the force of his creativity. He was able to fathom the rhythm of Panahi's heart from prison, sensing the emotions of an artist who cannot express himself freely.

In order to express the calling of Panahi's heart for artistic freedom through his instrument, he surmounted numerous obstacles to record the imprisoned filmmaker's actual heartbeat in Iran. Lead by Panahi's heartbeat he traces Panahi's anguish, his sorrow and his determination to break through constraints and limitiations. Mortazavi acconpanies Panahi's heartbeat, he contributes to the actual beating of the heart by playing on top of it and dwelling in the musical colours of the moment.
