The Drum


Is this a story of extremes, of bi-cultural upbringing, or is it simply the story of all mothers and daughters? Sachli Gholamalizad, a young Belgian actress of Iranian descent, questions her troubled relationship with her mother. Through fusing together recordings, diary excerpts, memories, novels and soundscapes from both Belgium and Iran, Sachli, dives into her family’s history and the contradictions in the lives of these three women, confronting both her mother and grandmother in a thrilling and unruly multi-media performance.

She becomes the DJ of her own family history, through a tangle of multimedia ★★★★
