About the Presenter

Ladan Yalzadeh is an award winning filmmaker, published author, and an internationally renowned performance artist, as well as a working class immigrant, a woman still fighting for equality, and a survivor of war working for non-aggression. Her credits include, but are not limited to, The Florist (Best Short Film award at the Noor Film Festival in Los Angeles) and 10+Seattle - a 9/11 Day of Reflection (a 10 year anniversary event remembering 9/11).

In 2007, the Spring Humanities Series explored the people and cultures of the Middle East and endeavored to provide a context for building greater understanding of Middle Eastern realities. Ms. Yalzadeh was able to provide insights into Iranian culture and life, and we were treated to a viewing of The Florist, as well as a reading of her script for a movie in development. Since she was here, she has continued her interest in filmmaking, at the same time exploring other art mediums including installation pieces and events. She will give us an update on her activities and share her perspective on how Iranian culture is portrayed in American media.
