Qashqai Female Voices – Films & Discussion

Sunday, June 2nd, 2024, 15.00-17.00 hrs

Location: Lutherkirche Südstadt, Martin-Luther-Platz 2-4, 50677 Cologne

The “Qashqai Female Voices” project, initiated and curated by ethnomusicologist Yalda Yazdani, takes a new look at the rich but marginalized culture of Qashqai women in southwest Iran in a series of events – so far at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum. On 2 June, a film program in the Lutherkirche in Südstadt will provide an insight into the singing, crafts, rituals and visual art of the nomadic tribe. This will be followed by a panel discussion comparing positions of minority and female filmmaking.

In cooperation with the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Mueseum.
