From the archive

This film was last shown on 11 October 2018

A stunning animated drama by Iranian-born filmmaker Ali Soozandeh, where the cover of animation is used to paint a harsh social realism on modern Iran. Through the lives of three strong-willed women, this film explores the intersections between sex, drugs, corruption and strict religious law, telling stories otherwise impossible to show onscreen.

Engaging and enlightening, it’s the perseverance of the three female protagonists as they navigate impossible taboos and a society that won’t allow them to live that drive this dark and difficult drama.
