Trailerama: Zanan-e badun-e mardan/Women Without Men

It’s been a year where artists like Steve McQueen and Sam Taylor-Wood have turned their hands to dramatic features. Iranian video artist Shirin Neshat channels her themes into the story of her nation’s 1953 coup, sponsored by the CIA, as seen by four women. Like McQueen, Neshat is looking back at eternal power structures, using the tools of political consciousness and imaginative abstraction. Based on the novel by Shahrnoush Parsipour. Music by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
