Image from the film My Tehran for Sale
An Australian-Iranian co-production by avant-garde poet/filmmaker Granaz Moussavi, My Tehran for Sale is a stunning portrait of the secret lives artists must lead in order to thrive in the Iranian capital. The film follows Marzieh, a terminally ill actress who, through lyrical flashbacks, recounts her struggles to survive—as a performer, woman, and human being—underneath strict government rule. Set amongst actual hidden performance spaces and clandestine raves, Moussavi carves an invigorating cinematic document out of an often-suffocating urban experience. (Digital)
