''The film is truly a masterpiece' - Vox Magazine

Akram only discovered her talent for painting at the age of 50, expressing herself through powerful, primitive, colourful canvases. But this uneducated, Iranian grandmother, married since the age of nine, must negotiate permission from her husband to realise her dream of attending her own exhibition in Paris. A warm and revealing portrait of an unlikely artist and a traditional Iranian marriage.

Féminin, Masculin
Dir. Sadaf Foroughi
Iran / 2007 / 8 mins 41

In the male dominated society of Iran, Farahnaz Shiri, the first female bus driver in Tehran, has made her own little society in her bus.
