Kamran Shirdel b. 1939
Nedamatgah (Women's Prison) (1965)
Duration: 10:38, B&W
Nedamatgah (Women's Prison) is the first — and least subversive — film made by Kamran Shirdel under the auspices of Organization of The Iranian Women [sic]. Prisoners and their hardships (especially vis-à-vis their children) are juxtaposed with an optimistic presentation of rehabilitation and education initiatives. Nedamatgah was one of Shirdel's only commissions not to be banned.
