Food for Thought - Persian Balance - Ep. 7
Directed by Martijn Tervoort • Documentary • With Tina Rahimy • 2019 • 36 minutes
The students talk with Iranian philosopher Tina Rahimy about moving beyond the restrictive categorizations of language, stressing the importance of openness, respect, and adaptability in communication. Professor Rahimy discusses how linguistic categorizations—whether racial, cultural, or sexual—can be reductive and limit the possibility of philosophical thought and real world action. Keeping in mind contemporary issues like resurgent nationalism and anti-immigrant sentiment, the group stresses the importance of change, flexibility, and difference as they move forward and engage with the wider world.
