Gene Siskel Film Center to Screen Mehrnaz Saeed-Vafa's New Documentary
A feature-length documentary by Columbia Cinema and Television Arts Professor Mehrnaz Saeed-Vafa will have two screenings this weekend at the Gene Siskel Film Center.
“A House Is Not A Home: Wright or Wrong,” directed by Saeed-Vafa, is among eight documentaries featured throughout the month of January in a series titled “Stranger Than Fiction.”
The film documents the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home of longtime Chicago Reader film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum in Florence, Alabama, and finds parallels to Saeed-Vafa’s childhood home in Tehran, Iran.
Screenings will take place on Saturday, January 18 at 5:15 p.m., and Monday, January 20 at 7:45 p.m. There will be a Q&A with both Saeed-Vafa and Rosenbaum following each screening.
