Women according to men

Date: Wed 11 Mar 2020
Time: 18:00
Saeed Nouri • Iran 2019 • 90m • 15 • Persian with English subtitles • Documentary

This well-researched documentary, with over 120 clips from archival films shot almost exclusively by male film-makers, portrays the domestic and social position of Iranian women from 1932 to the 1979 revolution. The patriarchal family, love and deception, unwanted pregnancies and abortions, arranged marriages and polygamy, form the background to the movie’s central themes of education, emancipation and the salvation of Iranian women, torn between tradition and modernity.
