DIRECTOR: Granaz Moussavi - IRAN

Filmed in secret, renowned poet Moussavi’s bold first feature crafts a timely story of a generation living double lives in their own country. Marzieh, a young actress in Tehran, chafes under the pressure of government authorities who want to suppress her theater work. When she meets Saman at an underground rave, the Iranian-born Australian citizen offers her a way out of Iran and the possibility of a livelihood without fear. Set against the backdrop of Tehran’s thriving underground art, music, and theater scene and framed through a series of artful and dramatic flashback sequences, Moussavi acutely registers the trials of a modern woman struggling to flourish in a stifling contemporary socio-political climate. (97 mins.)

First Feature Film.

In Persian and English.
