Abstract

This article examines the role of music in exoticising processes of representing and negotiating otherness in Iranian cinema, with reference to two main case examples. It explores the ways in which film narratives have been mobilised in the service of, or resistance to, differing visions of nationhood, in the context of which music facilitates an affective sonic marking of difference.
