Global Lens films @ Hillyer Art Space

Screening of My Tehran for Sale to kick off the Global Lens 2010 DC Educational Tour- Cross-cultural dialogue through film!

With a new film scheduled to show every month at Hillyer Art Space, we begin the journey with My Tehran For Sale by Granaz Moussavi.

The movie centers around a young, aspiring actress named Marzieh living in Tehran who must conceal her true artistic identity under an Iranian regime that is oppressive towards women and creatives. She falls in love with an Iranian native (Saman) who recently received citizenship in Australia. As their love grows, she must decide either to combat the mounting threat of living a life of repression and silence or to flee her home and begin life anew with her beloved. This wavering and rather dangerous divide is not the only one haunting her.
