Description

Starless Dreams

(Mehrdad Oskouei, Iran, 2016, 76 minutes)

OFFICIAL TRAILER

In a Tehran facility called the ‘Correction and Rehabilitation Centre’, teenage girls are kept from society for a variety of infractions: robbery, assault, addiction, prostitution, homelessness. These are the front lines of impoverishment, alienation and gender politics in contemporary Iranian society, and it’s no small miracle that filmmaker Mehrdad Oskouei not only arranged such intimate access to these troubled young women, but also got them to speak so freely and frankly about the conditions and circumstances that resulted in being shut away in the first place. At once inextricably rooted in specific cultural circumstances yet speaking to the universal experience of state institutionalization, Starless Dreams is a deeply revealing humane study of the limits of the permissible.
