“OFF THE BEATEN PATH: VIOLENCE, WOMEN AND ART”

While violence is a constant threat, it is so sadly appropriate today to think about women and violence as we see and read about Iran.

Visit the virtual show; it is remarkable.

  1. Several excellent films on women in Iran:

    Kiarostami’s “Ten”
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0301978/externalreviews

    Marzieh Makhmalbaf’s “The Day I Became a Woman” (Meshkini is wife of the great film-maker Mohsen Makhmalbaf, a spokesperson for Moussavi)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0260332/

    Panahi’s “Offside”
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0499537/externalreviews

    All, I believe, were banned from screening in Iran, though they are easy to find on dvd in the States and elsewhere (if not also, illicitly, in Iran).

  2. Again, Rob, thanks. I suppose we may well have to watch a prolonged and brutal period of repression.
