'Women Without Men' To Be Screened in Montreal

Thanks to the DHC/ART Foundation, the first feature film of American-Iranian visual artist Shirin Neshat, Women Without Men (Zanan-e bedun-e mardan), will be screened in Montreal.

The film is adapted from a novel by Sharhnush Parsipur. It chronicles the intertwining lives of four Iranian women in the summer of 1953 – a crucial moment in Iranian history – when an American led, British backed coup d’état brought down the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh and re-installed the Shah to power. Opposition to the monarchy ultimately led to the Islamic Revolution of 1979.

If this film interests you, here's the schedule of its screening at Montreal's Musée des beaux-arts:

Tuesday, June 1, 2010 at 7:00 p.m.
Maxwell Cummings Auditorium
Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion
Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal
1379 Sherbrooke Street West

Finally, note that the doors will be opened at 6:30 p.m. Furthermore, the admission for the screening is free. As for Nishat, she will be present to introduce the film and for a Q&A period after the screening. If you can't see the film on this day, have in mind that it will eventually be in theatres.
