Against the tumultuous backdrop of Iran’s 1953 CIA-backed coup d’état, the destinies of four women converge in a beautiful orchard, where they find independence, solace and companionship. Acclaimed photographer Shirin Neshat makes her directorial debut with this incisive and sumptuously filmed reflection on the pivotal moment in history that directly led to the Islamic revolution and the Iran we know today. WOMEN WITHOUT MEN, an adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur's magic realist novel, is Iranian artist, Shirin Neshat’s, first feature length film. The story chronicles the intertwining lives of four Iranian women during the summer of 1953; a cataclysmic moment in Iranian history when an American led, British backed coup d’état brought down the demo- cratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and reinstalled the Shah to power. Over the course of several days four disparate women from Iranian society are brought together against the backdrop of political and social turmoil. Fakhri, a middle aged woman trapped in a loveless marriage must contend with her feelings for an old flame who has just returned from America and walked back into her life. Zarin, a young prostitute, tries to escape the devastating realization that she can no longer see the faces of men. Munis, a politically awakened young woman, must resist the seclusion imposed on her by her religiously traditional brother, while her friend Faezeh remains oblivious to the turmoil in the streets and longs only to marry Munis’ domineering brother. As the political turmoil swells in the streets of Tehran, each woman is liberated from her predicament. Munis becomes an active part of the political struggle by plunging to her death. Fakhri frees herself from the chains of her stagnant marriage by leaving her husband and purchasing a mystical orchard in the outskirts of the city. Faezeh is taken to the orchard by Munis to face her own awakened self where Zarin has found solace in her communion with the land. But it is only a matter of time before the world outside the walls of the orchard seep into the lives of these four women as their country’s history takes a tragic turn.

Women Without Men is een symbolische en allegorische vertelling over vier vrouwen die breken met de traditie en het lot in eigen hand nemen. Het debuut van de Iraans-Amerikaanse fotograaf en videokunstenaar Shirin Neshat werd op het filmfestival van Venetië 2009 bekroond met de Zilveren Leeuw en de UNICEF-prijs. Women Without Men schetst de levens van vier vrouwen in de zomer van 1953: een opstandige vrouw in een liefdeloos huwelijk, een jonge prostituee, een politiek activiste en een traditionele jonge vrouw. De film, geïnspireerd op de in Iran verboden novelle uit 1989 van Shahrnush Parsipur, speelt tegen de achtergrond van de Iraanse machtsomwenteling in 1953. Amerikaans-Britse troepen brachten de democratisch gekozen president Mossadegh ten val om de macht van de Sjah te herstellen.

In 1965, Mike Peterson, an American Peace Corps volunteer midway through his two-year service in Colombia, is heading into the rainforest with friends. Thanks to a land-reform policy—“land without men for men without land”—his friends intend to claim a parcel of free jungle land to homestead. Mike eagerly accepts the invitation to be a part of this life-changing experience with them. No one could have predicted just how life-changing the experience truly would be. While traveling overnight to the rainforest by chiva—the rustic, open-air buses of the Andes—Mike and his friends are pulled into a situation they can’t fully understand. They attempt to rescue a young woman from her abusive companion, a ruffian who turns out to be an employee and friend of Don Trujillo, the vengeful rancher and smuggler who controls the flow of contraband along the Urabá coast. In payment for their kindness, the homesteaders may have provoked the wrath of the unpredictable Trujillo and his gun-slinging gauchos. The mountainous forest they are heading into is a refuge for Indians, bandits, smugglers, and outlaws, as well as the many camouflaged, lethal creatures that inhabit the woods, swamps, and waterways. Mike and his friends must find the strength and courage to survive the many challenges of their new rainforest home, but the promise of love and hope keeps them going.
