Im Bazar der Geschlechter – Director’s Cut

Documentary Film, AT 2023, digital, 72 min, OmdU

In Iran, where body politics and sexual morality are regulated by the state, men and women find loopholes in the context of so-called temporary marriages, which confer autonomy but also create dependencies. More than a decade after the first screening of her film, Sudabeh Mortezai dares to make an updated cut, which in light of the current revolution gains new meaning and demonstrates the continuities of both repression and resistance.
