She plans to submit the film to the 2nd Tehran Mobile Film and Photo Festival, which will be held during September, the organizers announced on Wednesday.
“I wanted to show how the painting was created for the collection,” Varga Sinaii said.
“This work measures 50x1500 centimeters and its long length refers to this idea that life is long,” she added.
The collection “Travel Diary” contains 10 large-size paintings, which narrate the life story of Gizella in Hungary, Austria and Iran.
“Travel Diary”, also known as “Travelogue”, has been displayed at exhibitions in Finland, Austria, Hungary and the Georgian Republic over the past few years.
“In this collection that I began to create ten years ago, I have depicted my 50-year journey from the West to the East, and I add one or two works to the collection every year,” Varga Sinaii stated.
“About ten years ago, I saw that I loved to talk about myself in my works; about an artist who has come from another country and has settled in Iran,” she added.
“I always had a deep affection for Iranian art and I wanted to illustrate this love in my works,” she noted.
Seventy-year-old Varga Sinaii said that she has made the film the artwork with no help from her husband, director of the family drama “The Bride of Fire”.
“He was very concerned about how I would be able to make the film, but I wanted to make the film independently,” she added.
The film was shot by her daughter, Samira, who also gave her some advice on editing it.
Mobile films by stage director Behruz Qharibpur, actors Babak Hamidian, Atila Pesyani, Farhad Aiish, Fatemeh Motamed-Arya, and Niki Karimi, singer Reza Yazdani and graphic designer Qobad Shiva will compete and be screened at the 2nd Tehran Mobile Film and Photo Festival, which will be held from September 12 to 19.
