Film IR 2016 R: Nahid Hassanzadeh 82‘ // D:  Majid Potki, Shaghayegh Kamandi, Yasaman Nosrati, Fatemeh Mortazi

Ghadir, a chemical plant worker, protesting against being unpaid for over a year, is arrested during a demonstration and imprisoned without trial. He is released one year later with no explanation given. On arriving home he finds out his daughter, Somayeh, has given birth out of wedlock and will not talk about the identity of her child’s father. Ghadir is torn between his fear of the ridicule of his neighbours, his own sense of shame, and his love-hate relationship with his daughter and her child. Nahid Hassanzadeh (*1974 in Mianeh) had studied to become a midwife before she studied acting in Tehran. Guest: Nahid Hassanzadeh
