Tao Hui's video The Dusk of Tehran was shot during an artist residency in Tehran. It transposes a heart-rending speech given by the late Hong Kong pop singer Anita Mui into a conversation between a young Iranian actress and her taxi driver. Having gone public about her terminal illness (Mui died of cervical cancer in 2003 at the age of 40), the singer spoke to fans at her final concert of her desire for love and the difficulty of finding it, while dressed in a bridal gown.
