“Subtotals” Mohammadreza Farzad
Premiere at IFF Berlinale 2022
The first project developed in the Essay Film Studio of the Lodz Film School.
“Subtotals” (Majmouan) is an essay film about an accounting never being applied to one’s life’s products. Inspired by a short story of the same title by Gregory Burnham and the novel “Autoportrait” by Édouard Levé, and wholly composed of 8mm home movies of Iranian people, Majmouan is a meditation on the uncertainties of a life that doesn’t hand you any bills.
The film is shown in the Berlinale interdisciplinary section Forum Expanded, which programme reflects on the medium of film, socio-artistic discourse and a particular sense for the aesthetic.
Directed by Mohammadreza Farzad
Produced by Lodz Film School Executive Producer Road River Films
