Women Without Men | by Shirin Neshat

WOMEN WITHOUT MEN is Shirin Neshat’s independent film adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur’s magic realist novel. The story chronicles the intertwining lives of four Iranian women during the summer of 1953; a cataclysmic moment in Iranian history when an American led, British backed coup d’état brought down the democratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and reinstalled the Shah to power.

  1. I have been dying to see this movie yet sadly haven’t had a chance to yet! I didn’t know this was adapted from a book, however, so now I can go at least read the book! On most other sites I don’t believe it is mentioned it was adapted from a book… :S
