Public Master Class with Mani Haghighi

Mani Haghighi likes to compare his stories to a curveball in a baseball play. Curveballs are thrown with such force that the batter can hardly anticipate the ball’s trajectory. Nothing you could say about Haghighi’s films can be said with certainty.
Over the course of a detailed conversation between Mani Haghighi and Ute Holl, Matthias Wittmann and Hemen Heidari from the seminar for Media Studies in Basel, they will try to outline the flight path of all these curve balls that the director throws at us.
