Tehran taboo

Tues 12th Mar/Weds 13th Mar 7.30pm

In this gorgeously animated drama, the lives of several strong-willed women and a young musician intersect.

Their stories reveal the hypocrisies of modern Iranian society, where sex, drugs, and corruption coexist with strict religious law and women are invariably on the bottom rung of the social order.

Using rotoscope animation, Iranian filmmaker Ali Soozandeh creates a portrait of contemporary Tehran that would be impossible by any other means.

Cert 15. In Persian. Subtitled. 94 mins.

Ventnor Film Society meets in the comfortable Ventnor Arts Club, 13 High Street, Ventnor.
