Summary
  • "Set against the political turmoil of Iran's 1953 coup d'etat, 'Women without men' tells the story of four disparate women whose lives converge in a mystical orchard on the outskirts of Tehran"-- Container
  • Women Without Men is Shirin Neshat's independent film adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur's magic realist novel. The story chronicles the intertwining lives of four disparate Iranian women whose lives converge in a mystical orchard on the outskirts of Tehran during the summer of 1953. It is a cataclysmic time in Iranian history when an American led, British backed coup d'etat brought down the democratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and reinstalled the Shah to power
