Winner of the Silver Lion for Best Director at the 2009 Venice Film Festival, this first feature film by acclaimed visual artist Shirin Neshat explores the lives of four women during the traumatic era in early fifties Iran.

Against the tumultuous backdrop of Iran’s 1953 CIA-backed coup d’état, the destinies of four women converge in a beautiful orchard garden, where they find independence, solace and companionship.

Neshat delves into the social and psychological dimensions of her characters, as a British and American backed coup topples a democratically elected government.

With subtlety and poetry, Women Without Men reveals the impact of historical and religious forces on females across the spectrum of Iranian society.
