About Women's Prison
Manijeh Hekmat's controversial film won awards at the Rotterdam and Fribourg film festivals. It tells the harrowing story of Mitra and Mrs Yousefi, two contrasting women on opposite sides of the prison system, during a two decade period starting in 1979. While prisoner Mitra and warden Mrs Yousefi start out feuding, the harsh conditions of the prison and the traumatic events which occur there eventually become larger than their rivalry, drawing them towards an unspoken friendship. A powerful drama with an extremely poignant ending.
