A documentary on a vitally
important aspect of Iranian society, Our Times looks at the
changing role of women to a backdrop of the 2002 Iranian elections.
Shot by female director Rakshan Bani-Etemad, the film focuses
on an audacious run for president by a woman who is part of
a wider group of politically-charged Iranian females who have
decided to run for office.
Naturally this is all a bolt out of the blue for the ultraconservative
Iranian society that spawned them, but makes for fascinating
viewing for the rest of us.
