Matthew Holtmeier, postdoctoral teaching fellow in Screen Studies, authored an article in the anthology Cinematic Homecomings: Exile and Return in Transnational Cinema.
His piece, titled "Burning Straw Men: The 1979 Revolution and Bahman Farmanara's Stubborn Cosmopolitanism," explores director Bahman Farmanara's departure from Iran due to the 1979 revolution, and his subsequent return after working as a producer abroad. The films Farmanara made after returning to Iran illustrate the director's 'stubborn cosmopolitanism,' despite the newly structured sense of national identity in post-revolution Iran.
