Film Series: Women in Modern Iranian Cinema
In partnership with the Cinema and Media Studies program, the Davis presents this series of film screenings dedicated to exploring the groundbreaking achievements of women directors in modern Iranian cinema. Proportionally speaking, there have been more high profile female directors in Iran than in several Western countries, despite the hardships of women in post-Revolutionary Iran. These films range from drama to comedy and explore a broad range of topics, suspending generalizations of Iranian society and provoking curiosity. These selections highlight just a few of these critically-acclaimed films - sure to delight cinephiles, art-lovers, and everyone in-between.
Generously supported by the Davis Museum Film Program Gift.
Screenings begin at 6:00pm in Collins Cinema
The Day I Became a Woman (2000, Dir. Marziyeh Meshkini)
Special Presentation in 35mm
Meshkini’s film tells the interconnected stories of three Iranian women struggling with their female identity at different stages in their lives. Winner of three awards at the 2000 Venice Film Festival, The Day I Became a Woman has been described as “Felliniesque” by several critics and was temporarily banned upon its release in Iran.
