Jorge León

Responding to the SOS of his colleague Mitra Kadivar in late 2012, the psychoanalyst Jacques-Alain Miller tries, by exchanging letters, to get her released from a psychiatric hospital in Teheran where she is being wrongly held. With this striking correspondence, Jorge León conceives an ambitious project and makes Mitra the tragic figure of feminine heroism in a show combining opera, documentary cinema and installation. The lyrical voice of threatened speech.
