Director: Samira Makhmalbaf
Starring: Massoumeh Naderi, Zahra Naderi, Ghorban Ali Naderi
Iran, 1998, 1 hour 23 minutes, Farsi with English subtitles
This turns the real-life story of the protective incarceration of two young girls by their father into an allegory of deliverance and redemption. Told in a deceptively simple, non-judgmental way this becomes a damning indictment of Iranian patriarchal culture.
“Makhmalbaf's impeccable feature-film debut is a witty and precociously intelligent docudrama.” Sight & Sound
Winner FIPRESCI Prize Locarno International Film Festival 1998
