DIRECTOR: Ida Panahandeh - IRAN

Panahandeh depicts the near impossibility of finding security and happiness within Iran’s strictures of socially enforced respectability. Nahid, an impoverished young divorcée, is allowed to live with her teenage son, but only on the condition that she does not remarry. Hoping to move in with the man she loves, Nahid considers an option called “temporary marriage,” a legality that allows short-term domiciles and perhaps won’t jeopardize her custody. But is this legal loophole a salvation or a curse? Starring A Separation’s Sareh Bayat, Nahid weighs the rewards of domestic security against the sacrifices of personal freedoms. Winner, Un Certain Regard Prix de l’Avenir (debuting films) at the Cannes Film Festival. (105 mins.)

Filmography: The Story of Davood and the Dove (2011)
