Searching for Aramsayesh Gah
UNCOVERING THE CRUEL, SECRET ARCHITECTURE OF REFUGEE DETENTION | feature in production
Memories take shape as refugee, journalist, and architect ELAHE ZIVARDAR (who co-directs and executive produces) revisits six years of brutal detention by constructing a photo-realistic 3D simulation of Australia’s infamous Nauru Regional Processing Centre. Drawing from the stark testimonies of other detainees and the latest trove of never-before-seen footage from inside the prison, SEARCHING FOR ARAMSAYESH GAH uncovers the built systems of migrant and refugee detention by charting a visceral, poetic course through the architecture of torture, trauma, and healing.
