Iran film: Our Times

March 14, 2012 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Arguably contemporary Iran’s most famous woman director, Rakhshan Bani-Etemad’s Our Times (2002) is a wrenching documentary about the women and children left behind under President Khatami’s two term reformist government. Our Times documents the hysteria leading up to President Khatami’s second win in the 2001 elections, which he won with 70% landslide votes, but also in which 700 candidates ran for the presidency of which forty eight were women.
