TRAILER: Starless Dreams

  • Iran

Murder, drug addiction, highjacking cars, running away from home. These are just a few of the crimes that the girls from the rehabilitation centre for juvenile delinquents in Tehran have committed. For seven years, director Mehrdad Oskouei sought permission from the Iranian authorities to allow him to film this strange place, otherwise hidden from the public eye. Once inside, he then shared their tears, laughter, defiance, fear and loneliness. The result is an incredibly intimate documentary about the dreams, nightmares and hopes of women who, going by their age, should still be children. Their personal stories show their desire to return to freedom and live a normal life, but also the fear of what is waiting for them on the outside. One World
