About Our Times
This docu-fiction focuses on the lives of several Iranian women throughout the presidential elections of 2001. Director Rakhshan Bani-Etemad, one of Iran's most respected feminist filmmakers, explores two groups of women, one old and one young, to contrast divergent political attitudes across the generation gap. At one end of this spectrum is the director's daughter and a group of her friends, on the other end is a group of forty-eight older women running for office. Binding these two stories together is the tale of Arezoo Bayat and her daughter who are simply trying to make a living amid the headier issue of the elections. A compelling portrait of life as a Iranian woman at the turn of the 21st century.
