Tara Najd Ahmadi

Tara Najd Ahmadi (Iran)

Born in Tehran, Tara Najd Ahmadi is a non-fiction filmmaker and scholar. Her films focus on creating a panorama of marginalized narratives that can be gleaned through unofficial oral histories. In that space, she is interested in the ways in which subjects resist power structures and deal with the consequences. Retrospectives of her work have been shown in various places including Depot (Kunst und Diskussion)in Vienna, and the Academic Film Center in Belgrade. In 2019 she received her doctorate degree in Visual and Cultural Studies from the University of Rochester (NY), where she investigated the notions of “incomplete and unfinished” in art projects and films that were made during revolutionary times.
