Writer & Director
I Look Down on Myself tells the tale of Mandana, an immigrant in Scotland, who is grappling with the realisation of how she has steadily began to lose a sense of her identity and how she now disassociates from each present moment, whilst also reflecting on the trauma of witnessing her parent’s pitiful transformation from citizens to immigrants. I Look Down on Myself is Hamidi’s take on the notion of a ghost story, with the ghost metaphor standing in for the experience of disappearing pieces of yourself and your birth culture/heritage to assimilate and ‘pass’ culturally in the UK.
