We Are Half of Iran's Population

Directed by Rakhshan Bani-Etemad

 

Three months before Iran's presidential elections Iranian women's rights activists -- consisting of a vast spectrum of different points of view from religious to secular and ordinary women -- are filmed posing their questions to the ten candidates and three of them discuss their opinions after watching the film. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, however, is not willing to take part in the film or to respond.

 

By the time the film is finished, three individuals who have taken part in the film are thrown in prison, falling victim to the massive post-election detentions. This film sheds light on the reality of the situation of Iran.
