NAHID

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.

NO HOME MOVIE

DIRECTOR: Chantal Akerman - BELGIUM

“At the center of Akerman’s enormous body of work is her mother, a Holocaust survivor who married and raised a family in Brussels. In recent years, the filmmaker has explicitly depicted, in videos, books, and installation works, her mother’s life and their own intense connection to each other. No Home Movie is a portrait [of Akerman’s mother] in the last years of her life.
