Shahrzaad’s Tale is a story of a lost era and a forgotten star of pre-revolutionary Iranian cinema. Shahrzaad is the pseudonym of early 60s popular Iranian actor, also a published writer and a filmmaker. She saw her fortunes plummet dramatically after the Revolution of 1979. Today after more than 30 years of being out of work, in her mid-sixties, Shahrzaad is a wandering homeless. A tale of an incredible female artist caught in three decades of political turmoil in the cultural landscape of contemporary Iran.
Directed by Shahin Parhami
