Women of Iran film series: Women's Prison

VIEW EVENT DETAILS

Manijeh Hekmat. Iran. 2002. 106 min. 35 mm. Banned in Iran, this taboo-breaking film uses the claustrophobic life of women behind bars as a metaphor for Iranian society since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Covering a span of almost two decades, the film centers on the relationship between an inmate who is jailed for killing a violent stepfather and a warden who is at once stern and humane. Part of Global Film Initiative's Global Lens collection.
