Iranian Diasporic Women Filmmakers

Back to search results

Decades of socio-political upheaval have led to the establishment of large Iranian diasporic communities in the USA, Australia and Europe. Among these communities, women have established careers in the creative arts and cinema in relatively large numbers. This project will focus on the work of Iranian diasporic women filmmakers and will apply critical frameworks such as cultural studies and feminist film theory. The research will examine how these filmmakers are giving voice and image to women's experience in ways that are impossible in their homeland due to the imposition of strict censorship of women's images, bodies and sexuality.
