Middle East Film Series

Please join us for a screening of 111 Girls (Iran, 2012), directed by Nahid Ghobadi and Bijan Zmanpira. Pizza and soft drinks will be available at 6:15pm. The film will start at 6:30pm. About 111 Girls: A government official, carrying a message from Iran’s president, travels across Iranian Kurdistan with his driver and a young guide on a mission to stop 111 young Kurdish women from committing suicide in protest against conditions that have left them spinsters. Racing against the clock, they travel into territory simmering with resentment at official neglect and the hardship it has sown among a proud people. Against a dramatically colorful physical and human landscape, wistful longing mingles with dreamlike desire and absurdist humor as the three travelers meander helplessly in a land riddled with contradictions.
