Empire of Evil

HD 11 min, Austria / Iran 2016


Empire of Evil discusses the Western view of a non-Western society. It does so by way of a documentary about the partial

and exclusively negative political representation of Iran in the West. The film critically interrogates the medium of the

documentary film and its claim to truth. This is achieved by juxtaposing and contrasting documentary footage shot secretly

in Iran with the image of the country created in Western media.
