Cleveland premiere!


Iran | 2016 | Mehrdad Oskouei


Iranian filmmaker Mehrdad Oskouei spent seven years trying to secure access to the all-female juvenile detention center in Tehran that is the setting for her acclaimed new documentary. There she interviews some of the incarcerated teenage girls about their crimes (which range from cocaine possession to bank robbery to patricide) and about the societal and cultural and conditions that may have sparked them. “The world needs to see this spare, revelatory film and hear these girls' pained and sometimes proud confessions.” –Village Voice. Subtitles. DCP. 76 min.
