Ackland Film Forum: Women Without Men
November 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Dir. Shirin Neshat, Iran, 2009
Introductory Remarks by Ehsan Mashhadi (Asian Studies, UNC-Chapel Hill)
Made in collaboration with her partner, filmmaker Shoja Azari, Neshat’s Women Without Men is an adaptation of the novel by Shahrnush Parsipur, a book banned in Iran by the censors of the Islamic Republic. Both novel and film recount the journeys of four single women of varying age and social status who wind up meeting in a garden outside of Tehran during the summer of 1953–the eve of the coup d’etat that ousted Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh and restored the Shah to power.
