"In a society that systematically demolishes concepts of home including; people, land and histories, it is radical to tell stories. The tradition of storytelling has become a tool of resilience, resistance, and repair. Our histories have survived through memory. Through remembrance we transcend our displacement. We can reclaim narratives and restore collective truth, if we choose to remember." - Shireen

Shireen Alihaji is a First Gen, Ecuadorian-Iranian, Muslim and Disabled filmmaker. Her intersections inspire her to create space through film technologies. Given how we remember is pivotal to healing, her films use memory as a central gaze to de-internalize surveillance, uncensor the imagination and mirror our infinite reflections.
