Title: SHIRIN NESHAT : Women without men
Author: Heartney, Eleanor (et al)
Price: Not Available
ISBN: 9788881588060
Description: Milano: Charta, 2011. 29cm., pbk., 120pp., 84 illus., 55 in color. Summary: Iranian artist Shirin Neshat’s first feature film Women Without Men is an adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur’s magic realist novel. In this book the story is accompanied by a series of five video installations and photographs. Each video installation follows the destiny of the story’s five female characters: Mahdokht, Zarin, Munis, Faezeh, and Farokh Legha. Set during Iran’s tumultuous 1953 CIA-backed coup d’état, the destinies of the five female protagonists converge in a beautiful orchard, where they find independence, solace, and companionship. Incisive and sumptuously filmed, Women Without Men is an important artistic reflection on this pivotal moment in Iranian history that directly led to the Islamic revolution and modern-day Iran. Women Without Men was awarded the Silver Lion at the Venice International Film Festival in 2009.
