My Tehran for Sale
A masterful drama about contemporary Tehran and members of its underground art scene. An actress whose theater group has been banned meets an Australian-Iranian at a rave and sees moving to Australia with him as a way out of her fearful existence. A debut feature from filmmaker Granaz Moussavi, it is partly based on her own life. In a case of art imitating life, for appearing in this movie with her head uncovered, lead actress Marzieh Vafamehr was sentenced by Iranian courts to 90 lashes and a year in prison, a sentence that was eventually reduced to three months with the flogging sentence overturned. She gives a brave performance supported by outstanding cinematography.
(Australia, 96 minutes, 2009)
