Free Event

Please join us for our March screening of three short films focusing on women in Iran. A community discussion following the film will be led by our guest moderators artist Amitis Motevalli, and Iranian human rights activist Roxana Ganji.

It Is Written
Dir. Mostafa Heravi | Netherlands | 2006
In Iran women are not allowed to dance in public. "It is Written" is an experimental film that explores dance as social expression with an emphasis on the fate of womankind in modern Iran.

Feminin Masculin
Dir. Sadaf Foroughi | Iran | 2007
In the male-dominated society of Iran, Farahnaz Shiri, the first female bus driver in Tehran, has made her own little society in her bus. Normally in Iran there are different sections for men and women on public buses, with women entering through the back door. But in Mrs. Shiri’s bus everything is switched. Her story illuminates the struggles for gender equality and against injustice.

Final Moments
Dir. Shadi Amin | UK | 2013
"Final Moments" is a groundbreaking documentary exploring the rape of virgin girls prior to their execution and sexual torture at the hands of Islamic Republic prison authorities since 1979. "Final Moments" calls on the Islamic Republic of Iran, a member of the UN Human Rights Council, to live up to its state responsibilities by protecting the rights of Iranians who have been subjected to torture.
There will be a community discussion following the films led by our guest moderators artist Amitis Motevalli, and Iranian human rights activist Roxana Ganji.
Co-presented by VENICE ARTS + WOMEN'S VOICES NOW, this event is part of a new, monthly film screening and discussion series sparking discovery and understanding of the struggles and triumphs of women, filmmakers, and activists worldwide.
