CPCE screening: Women without Men
The Centre for Creative Practice and Cultural Economy presents a film by Shirin Neshat, introduced by Bridget Ikin
In her 2009 feature-film debut, renowned Iranian visual artist Shirin Neshat offers an exquisitely crafted view of Iran in 1953, when a British- and American-backed coup removed the democratically elected government. Adapted from the novel by Iranian auther Shahmush Parsipur, the film weave together the stories of five individual women during those traumatic days, whose experiences are shaped by their faither and the social structures in place.
