DIRECTOR: Mohammad Rasoulof - IRAN

Goodbye is the story of Noora (Leyla Zareh), a Tehran lawyer in search of a visa to leave the country. Recently disbarred for participating in activist campaigns against the government, Noora is pregnant and alone, her husband exiled because of his role as a political journalist. But Noora’s problems are compounded by her gender: women are not allowed to drive, cannot get medical procedures or check into a hotel without a male family member’s consent, and cannot take charge of simple transactions, like getting a security deposit back, without being harassed or cheated. Fed up, she decides to leave the country with the help of an Iranian version of a “coyote.” The title literally translates as “hope to see you again,” and the film’s action mimics director Rasoulof’s situation during the winter of 2010-11 as he received a one-year prison sentence and 20-year ban from filmmaking. (104 mins.)

Filmography: The Twilight (02), Iron Island (05), Head Wind (08), The White Meadows (09).



Interests: Narrative Feature, Middle Eastern.
