This group project by seven independent women documentary filmmakers from Iran – who were brought together by the desire to capture the world around them despite the dangers they face in their work every day – is a courageous voice for the emancipation of Muslim women. The autobiographical chapters, which all make use of voiceover, represent a personal testimony on the disappointments and hopes for political change at the next presidential elections. For Western viewers, the film is a remarkable report on the mood in contemporary Iranian society.

Seven courageous women speak in one voice against limitations on personal and artistic freedom. Led by 38-year-old director/producer Shirin Barghnavard, the group has a wealth of experience in independent filmmaking. Farahnaz Sharifi is one of the most award-winning documentarians of her generation. Nahid Rezaei and Firouzeh Khosrovani have run up against the Iranian government in the past with their films.
