Roqe Ep#269 - "Drawing Inspiration" - Mohammad Rasoulipour, Aryasb Feiz, Roqe Roundup
On a new edition of Roqe, the "khoresht" vs "khoresh" debate is in full flow (how is it said??), and Jian speaks to two talented visual artists who each share their personal stories and the profound influence that creativity has had on their lives. First, the Mohammad Rasoulipour, an acclaimed Iranian-American visual artist and technologist with a unique vision that intertwines history and art joins Jian to discuss his groundbreaking project, "Eranshahr," that meticulously reconstructs visual images of famous Iranian figures from the past through stunning renderings based on archaeological evidence. Then Aryasb Feiz, an Iranian animator and creative force who captivated audiences with his short film “Mr. Indifferent” - an animated film that went viral in the last couple of years - joins Jian from Tehran to discuss his upcoming project “Tomorrow,” his role as a character animator, screenwriter and director and the challenges of his work within Iran. Plus, Parissa, Pegah and Jian have an...animated...conversation about the correct spelling and pronunciation of “khoresh(t)” (stew) in Persian, and on the Roundup the team deals with the latest in news from inside and outside of Iran, including the new online campaign started by Iranian university students, a commemorative street sign put up in Ottawa to remember Mahsa Amini, and more.
