 "The Day I Became a Woman (Roozi ke zan shodam)" Temporarily banned in Iran, this film comprises three interconnected vignettes depicting women at different stages of life in Iran. First, a young girl’s life is devastated when, on her ninth birthday, she can no longer play with the boys because she is “now a woman.” Second, a young woman decides to enter a bicycle race against her husband's wishes. The bicycle race begins to symbolize a freedom she desperately lacks. Third, an old woman becomes economically independent and is now “free,” but even this freedom is questionable. (Language: Persian). Join us for this reflection on women in Iranian society!
