Broken Taboos and New Voices in Iran

Wednesday 23 March 2011, 6–8pm

Kim Longinotto and Ziba Mir-Hosseini show clips from their films Divorce Iranian Style (1998) and Runaway (2001). They reflect on the making of their films and their different perspectives, as well as the role of the camera within the shooting process. Further issues for discussion are recent developments and changing gender relations in Iranian society, and the intimate links between sexuality and democracy. Mir-Hosseini also speaks about Muslim feminists who seek to transcend the opposition ‘Islam’ vs ‘feminism’.

This is an event to accompany Reproductive Labour: An exhibition exploring the work of Cinenova.
