​”Life May Be” collaboration with Mark Cousins, 38th Women film festival in Paris​

Mania Akbari, the Iranian actress and director, and Mark Cousins, the British director and film critic, communicated first in a literary, then in a visual form. Their exchange became an epistolary feature film, a spiritual journey into their demanding artistic minds that confronts their cultures, their artistic sensitivities and their political visions.
