The Peephole Cinema in San Francisco is proud to present “Hofreh” a collection of videos showcasing Iranian artists who live and work in the cities of Tehran, Isfahan, Tabriz and Khoramabad. The title of this show is a Persian word that translates to hole or cavity and also applies to the word for eye socket. It’s a fitting title for works that respond to the Peephole Cinema’s unique space: videos that loop inside a hole in a wall located street side on a building in the Mission District.

Slides by Annabel Nicolson and Girish Shambu’s manifesto For a New Cinephilia are used as starting points from which to construct Movement and Handling, Selected Works from the LUX Collection. Nicolson’s fascination with fragments of older films and the transience of construction suggests a link with Shambu’s new cinephilia – a transient place between online and real-life.
