astonishingly gutsy and polished Dog Sweat
The lives of six rebellious youngster intertwine in present day Iran. Nominated for an Independent Spirit Award. Winner of Jury Award at the Rome International Film Festival.
“Using the subversive urgency of cinema verite, the lives of six youngsters intertwine in present day Iran. Misunderstood by their families and oppressed by conservative Islamic society, they act out their personal desires behind closed doors. A feminist finds herself in an affair with a married man, new lovers search for a place to be physically intimate; a gay man is faced with an arranged marriage; a female pop singer risks exposure; and a grief-stricken son lashes out at fundamentalists.
Shot clandestinely throughout Tehran, Hossein Keshavarz’s provocative film challenges the status quo by providing the new generation of Iranians a fervent voice of rebellion.”
