Iran: a fascinating country with an exceptional cultural background.
In this Islamic Republic, a creative and daring young photographic scene has committed to giving the world an other vision of its country. Who are these artists? How do they get around the limits of what is forbidden? What are their strategies for continuing to work - and to live - in Iran? The photographers Solmaz Daryani, Gohar Dashti, Shadi Ghadirian, Abbas Kowsari,Tamineh Monzavi, and Neshwa Tavakolian, will be the main actors of the film. Anahita Ghabaian, one of the most famoust photogallerist of Iran, will be kind of a thread of the film. From preliminary shoots to exhibition openings, this film follows them in their eventful daily lives, and accompanies them along the virtual, and real, red lines that must not be crossed. This movie sheds a new light on Iran, a complex country torn between tradition and modernity – a country in which these photographers have chosen to stay, out of passion and pride, despite the difficulties to work there.
