Tehran Taboo

22nd
7.00pm Fri

Animation, Asia in Focus

Directed by Ali Soozandeh

NT PREMIERE

The lives of three strong-willed women and a young musician intersect in this portrait of Tehran as a schizophrenic society where sex, adultery, corruption, prostitution and drugs coexist with strict religious law.

In this bustling modern metropolis, avoiding prohibition has become an everyday sport and breaking taboos can be a means of personal emancipation.

When you break a taboo apart, some will hate what they see. The film is a mirror.

Ali Soozandeh, Director of Tehran Taboo
