Haram Iran

Haram Iran

Above the Stag · 05 APR - 01 MAY

In 2005, teenagers Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni were hanged in “Justice” Square in Mashhad, Iran.

Overview

The news prompted outrage across the globe. Many believed the boys were killed for being gay, though the charge against them was the raping of a 13 year old boy two years earlier. Further facts are scarce.

Haram Iran imagines a possible, powerful version of the boys’ story. Both romantic and angry, it evokes all of the curiosity, humour, lust, comradeship, rage and rebellious spirit that unites teenagers the world over.
