Iranian cinema is known in the West primarily through success in film festivals, its aesthetics, and themes such as tradition, patriarchy, and politics. Male directors overwhelmingly represent its global screenings, despite the significant number of female directors within Iran.
For the first time in the UK, this festival, curated by Dr Nacim Pak-Shiraz, will bring together works by Iranian female directors on the theme of women constructing men. This will provide Scottish audiences a unique opportunity to experience Iranian women’s narratives on life in Iran, and be introduced to the works of both veterans and a new generation of female directors.
