(Iran/2009—directed by Shirin Neshat)

Set in Iran in 1953 during the period of political turmoil that resulted in the overthrow of Mossadegh government and the establishment of the shah’s dictatorship, Shirin Neshat’s Women Without Men interweaves the stories of four loosely connected Iranian women and their relationships with the men in their lives. Winner of the Silver Lion for Best Director at the 2009 Venice Film Festival, Neshat brings an extraordinary sense of design, emotional control and political insight to her storytelling, resulting in a rich, haunting and powerful sense of time and place. In Farsi with English subtitles. (95 min.)

“Stellar acting and gorgeous images.” –Ernest Hardy, The Village Voice
