Get inside the real Iran through the films of these cutting-edge Iranian filmmakers, who risk censorship and worse to expose and reveal life inside their country. LETTERS IN THE WIND tells the fictional story of Taghi, a naive young soldier from a small village who suffers the indignities of rigorous training in an isolated military camp. On a visit to Teheran, he carries the recorded messages of his fellow recruits to their loved ones-a mission fraught with unforeseen obstacles. In the documentary OUR TIMES, Rakhshan Bani-Etemad, one of Iran's courageous female directors, offers a privileged look inside a recent presidential election, in which 712 candidates ran for the office. Among them was a 25-year-old mother, whose identity as a divorced woman made her prospects dim. More than a political chronicle, OUR TIMES captures the hope and confusion of today's young Iranian women.
