Tehran Taboo2017. Germany/Austria. 90 min.
Director: Ali Soozandeh Featuring: Farhad Abadinejad, Jasmina Ali, Rozita Assadollahy, Alireza Bayram
In Tehran, prostitution, drugs, and corruption exist underneath the intense religious and social persecution. Pari, a prostitute, must balance these aspects of life in Tehran as she seeks a divorce from her drug addict husband. She moves into a new apartment building where her life intersects with neighbors who also struggle with these taboo topics. Housewife Sara longs for a job to escape her in-laws, while musician Babak deals with the repercussions of having sex with Donya, who is engaged to another man. Distinctive rotoscope animation brings to life this tale of breaking the confines of restrictive Iranian society.
