Shirin Neshat | Women Without Men

Women Without Men is a film adaptation of a novel by Iranian author Shahrnush Parsipur, which tells the stories of the struggles of four individual women. Directed by Shirin Neshat, it offers an exquisitely crafted view of women rights today in Iran, as compared to Iran in 1953. Neshat explores the social, political, and psychological dimensions of her characters as they meet in a metaphorical garden, which serves as their escape. Women Without Men was an official selection for the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival, Dubai International Film Festival, and for the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
