Starless Dreams

Director: Mehrdad Oskouei
2016 - Documentary - Iran - 76 Minutes - Unrated - English Subtitles

June 3 @ 12:00 pm

Starless Dreams plunges us into the lives of young teenage girls sharing temporary quarters at a juvenile detention center on the outskirts of Tehran. Director Mehrdad Oskouei, one of Iran’s most prominent filmmakers, spent seven years securing access to this all-female facility. As the New Year approaches, the girls bond and reveal—with playfully disarming honesty—the circumstances and acts that resulted in their incarceration. Outside the prison walls, danger is everywhere, even within their own families. With startling frankness and “the conceptual rigor and emotional directness associated with the best of Iranian cinema” (Variety), Starless Dreams delivers an unforgettable portrayal of innocence lost and found. Farsi with English subtitles
