The GraveSleepers

The GraveSleepers is an award-winning project by Naghmeh Sharifi.

The GraveSleepers is an animated short film, exploring themes of transience, mortality and the human condition. Inspired by factual events that led a group of itinerants to inhabit rows of empty graves in a cemetery on the outskirts of Tehran, گور خواب ها / The GraveSleepers, is a literal title of what aims to offer a lyrical interpretation, questioning the fragile and fleeting nature of our existence against a backdrop of dust.

Naghmeh Sharifi is a multidisciplinary Iranian / Canadian artist whose practice encompasses Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Installation, Video and Animation.
