Iran, Veiled Appearance

Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

This revealing look at life in today's Iran focuses on the divisions and conflicts between the adherents of the Islamist regime established by the undoubtedly just revolution against a corrupt Shah back in 1979; and those (mostly younger or more educated) people who understandably find the imams' strict constraints oppressive. The film traces developments from the '70s to the present, while giving voice to various contemporary attitudes, from an all-male religious meeting, via teens eager to chat with the opposite gender despite watchful soldiers, to a mixed sex dance class and, as a glorious finale, women paragliders.
