Synopsis

Internationally-acclaimed visual artist Shirin Neshat sends shock waves through the world of cinema with her directorial debut, the stunning and provocative Women Without Men. Set against the backdrop of 1953 Iran, a pivotal period of civil unrest in which a British and American-backed coup subverted the country's democratically-elected government, the film weaves together the experiences of four different women, exploring the shocking, profound, and ultimately irreversible ways in which history and culture intertwine to impact their lives.
