    • Synopsis
    • Life May Be is a digital film which could have been made in the 18th Century. Like Pamela, Samuel Richardson's epistolary novel, it is an exchange of letters - between Mania Akbari and Mark Cousins. Their themes are wide ranging - filmmaking, exile, Iran, the Holocaust and the human body. The film's form starts with extreme minimalism, but then opens up and shape shifts. We see ideas evolving, but style, too, as each filmmaker climbs upon the other's shoulders.
