“Modified (Hu)Man: Traditions, Vulnerabilities and Possible Futures” Panel at the “Iran at the Crossways: Documentaries and Dialogues on a Changing Society” Film Forum Hamburg (online)

Friday, November 12th, 2021, 7:00 p.m. [CET]

Modified (Hu)Man: Traditions, Vulnerabilities and Possible Futures

(introduction by Dr. Melike ┼×ahinol)

Body modifications are used not only to ÔÇťrepairÔÇŁ injuries or enable recovery after illness but also to enhance human performance. Consequently, we would like to highlight the practices and symbolic effects of such interventions. What are their empowering potentials, but also what are the emergent vulnerabilities of bodies in general? The films of this thematic block focus on the traditions, vulnerabilities, and possible futures of diverse body modifications in relation to gender as a social construct. They illustrate individual journeys of different bodily perceptions and interventions through time and space by showing the relationship between nature, culture, and the body with science-art as well as cultural and fictional contributions. In doing so, they raise questions about the relationships between socio-cultural coding of body modifications and notions of technology in science, art, and culture. In the center of the film screening stands the Iranian feature film StepfatherÔÇÖs Legacy that revolves around a man who is ready to get married and undertakes techno-medical modification efforts as an investment in his corporeal capital. A series of four short films from the ÔÇťBIO┬ĚFICTION Science Art Film FestivalÔÇŁ encourages the audience to reflect on the social implications of emergent technologies. By taking a fictional look ahead, we raise the question: Quo vadis, Modified (Hu)Man?


7:15 p.m. [CET]

Films (in screening order)

Adam
0:02, 2018, USA, Emma Allen, oD

A ÔÇťGrey MattersÔÇŁ collaboration between artist Emma Allen and neuroscientist Daisy Thompson-Lake, Adam is an animated portrait illustrating some of the underlying neurological processes and emotions associated with depression.

StepfatherÔÇÖs Legacy
1:07, 2015, Iran, Nima Mahdian, OmdU

A man who is planning to marry suffers from hair loss and baldness, leading him to experiment with various forms of medical treatment and even surgery. Although his efforts are an investment to boost his position on the marriage market, they ultimately expose the vulnerabilities of his masculinity.

Carlottas Gesicht
0:05, 2018, Germany, Valentin Riedl & Fr├ęd├ęric Schuld, dt./OV

As a child, Carlotta didnÔÇÖt expect the people around her to have faces. She didnÔÇÖt even recognize her own face. Years later, she learns about a rare, untreatable deficit of her brain. It was art, after all, that offered her a way to finally recognize herself.

The Auxiliary
ÔÇő0:08, 2018, Belgium, Fr├ęd├ęric Plasman, OmdU

Alone in front of her reflection in a collapsing world, someone desperate, feeling unfairly discredited, is going to end it all. But who is she and why?
