AND, TOWARDS HAPPY ALLEYS
This documentary was six years in the making, which is the time it took the author to document and weave into a story the confessions of Iranian women who fight daily and uncompromisingly for their rights. The love for Iran’s poetry and cinema is the primary motive for the creation of And, Towards Happy Alleys, which also takes the opportunity to reveal to the viewers how life-threatening it can be to criticize the country’s regime.
