Perspectives on Iran

Complimenting the retrospective of our Guest of Honour Rakhshan Banietemad, Sheffield DocFest has curated a selection of new and vital documentaries showing different perspectives on Iran. Ranging from female filmmakers surveying the limitations placed on their lives and work, a reassessment of the male gaze in cinema and an account of the insidiousness of censorship to a dark portrait of political interrogation and a celebration of friendship across two continents. Together, they explore the challenges of everyday life in Iran, but also hope for change and a brighter future.
