Loghman Khaledi's Interview | Nessa

Nessa, a young Iranian Kurd, dreams of being an actress. Constrained by patriarchal values and social pressure, her family opposes her ambitions, violently... or reluctantly. Part cinéma-vérité part interview, the film records Nessa's battle. A tough, intense film, which tellingly conveys all the tension unleashed by a young woman's desire for emancipation in modern-day Iran.
