MENA Arts UK Short Film Commission
In December 2020 Peyvand won a commission from MENA Arts UK to conceive a new one-minute film, exploring the question: How should the MENA+ arts community celebrate what we have in common?
This formed a programme of eight enchanting, joyful, and thought-provoking films spanning animation, music, poetry, dance, installation and comedy.
Peyvand created a 1 minute stop motion animation titled The Art of Uprising celebrating the ability amongst diasporic artists to imagine different futures.
You can watch all the films on the MENA Arts UK Website (subtitles, and audio description available):
