‘Wolkaan‘ is an experimental short film project written and directed by Iranian Canadian filmmaker Bahar Noorizadeh.
The film couples two events that are seemingly unrelated in place and time: a volcanic eruption on a night in Tehran, and a road trip in the midwest of the Unites States by an Iranian immigrant and his son. These two narratives are neither parallel nor interwoven situations, but adjoin to create a reflective cinematic space for meditation on the diaspora and the relationship between personal memory, and the construction of collective memory.
