Iran | Documentary | 2017 | 81 min.

Director: Shiva Sanjari

Additional Credits: Producer: Garineh Nazarian


This is the story of the Iranian filmmaker known simply as Shahrzad, and her story is Dickensian in its drama. As a 12-year-old girl she was sold (!) by her father and forced to dance in a cabaret in Tehran. As the years passed she parlayed her dire straits into a hugely successful career as Iran’s most famous dancer and then, as an award-winning actress in Iranian cinema. A star was born! But not satisfied to rest on her laurels, she successfully pursued a career as filmmaker and, in fact, in 1977 became the first female director in Iran. 


Fast forward a couple of years and the Iran Revolution has roared across the nation, and it has no room for a self-made woman like Shahrzad. The government never let her work again. Worse, she was imprisoned where she became mentally unraveled, eventually ending up in a mental institution. Today, she is 72 years old and dealing with a life in a small village in Iran. Oh, but her memories are wholly intact. This poignant documentary includes fantastic archival film footage of Shahrzad at the height other career.
