The daughter of a secular father and a devout mother tells how they get along under the same roof. Through photographs and fictional conversations, we learn how the family changed during the years of the revolution in Iran. Using his own childhood as the center of the story, the author makes us witness a power struggle between mother and father. During the revolution, their modern apartment? adorned with bold art from the father? gradually turns into a dull and empty space in the hands of a religious mother. Like a diorama, the family home reflects the political events of the time. The family history becomes a central metaphor, depicting the intriguing enigma that makes up modern Iranian identity.

Is it harder for a woman to achieve? To find funding? To be respected by his team? Does he have a different look? Does the movie have a genre? These are terribly timely questions we asked 20 female directors and then 20 directors in France through two documentaries. But we have long been burning with the desire to expand our boundaries, to ask women filmmakers around the world. It’s done today, and from Asia to Africa through Europe, everyone we met played the game in front of our camera. Everyone is fun, sincere, involved, involved, everyone is looking for the best ways to exist in an environment that has always been ruled by men. All filmmakers and living witnesses to the dysfunctions still prevalent in the film industry.
