    Women Without Men

    Women Without Men by Shirin Neshat (2010, 99 min.). In her feature-film debut, renowned 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 author Shahrnush Parsipur, the film weaves together the stories of four women during those traumatic days, whose experiences are shaped by their faith and the current social structure.

    “With its intense chiaroscuro and meticulous manipulation of color…the film surpasses even Michael Haneke’s White Ribbon in the fierce beauty and precision of its cinematography” (Stephen Holden, The New York Times).
