WOMEN WITHOUT MEN, A Film by Shirin Neshat, NR, 95 min., IN FARSI WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
In her feature-film debut, renowned visual artist Shirin Neshat offers an exquisitely crafted view of Iran in 1953, when a British- and American backed coup removed the democratically elected government. Set against the tumultuous backdrop of Iran's 1953 CIA-backed coup d'etat, Women Without Men explores the destinies of four women from different socio-economic backgrounds, as they struggle to find independence, solace and companionship. Straying away from a traditional narrative, the film offers a provocative visual reflection on the pivotal moment in history that directly led to the Islamic revolution and Iran as we know it today, whilst striving to highlight the struggle that these women face in order to find meaning in their separate lives without men.
