ABOUT 111 GIRLS (Darbare 111 Dokhtar)

Director: Nahid Ghobadi and Bijan Zamanpira
Iraq   |   2012   |   79 minutes
Farsi/Persian and Kurdish, with subtitles in English

Synopsis A government official, carrying a message from Iran’s president, travels across Iranian Kurdistan with his driver and a young guide on a mission to stop 111 young Kurdish women from committing suicide in protest against conditions that have left them spinsters. Racing against the clock, they travel into territory simmering with resentment at official neglect and the hardship it has sown among a proud people. Against a dramatically colorful physical and human landscape, wistful longing mingles with dreamlike desire and absurdist humor as the three travelers meander helplessly in a land riddled with contradictions.
