Student Profile: Mozhdeh Bashirian

Contemporary Arts Master's Student in the Faculty of Communication, Art & Technology

December 08, 2020

My BA degree is in Film Directing, and I have some experience in filmmaking—fiction and documentary. I value both purely creative and purely academic aspects of arts. I am interested in exploring the unexplored and finding out what possibilities are beyond the familiar conventions. At present, the notable disinterest/skepticism toward film theory and postmodernist approaches in Iran motivates me more for further study in these fields.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

Since I am an independent filmmaker interested in experimental approaches to filmmaking, I was searching for programs with an intermedial perspective on art research and art-creation; therefore, I found this MA program at the SCA, whose interdisciplinary perspective is precisely what makes it unique.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

Currently, I'm working at the intersection of cinema studies, sound studies, and critical theory.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

What I enjoy the most is the feeling that all of our differences as artists and researchers are taken into the count as a part of our program-- which gives this experience a real sense of inclusion of diversity.
