Between Revolutions


In 1970s Bucharest, Zahra and Maria formed a deep friendship during university. As political turmoil brewed in Iran, Zahra was forced to return home, leaving Maria behind. They stayed connected through letters, chronicling their struggles as women in countries moving in divergent directions. Despite the distance and obstacles, their longing for each other remained strong.

'For me, the film is about a recent past, which reverberates very strongly with the immediate, current reality. It is a film that presents a subjective, feminine history of two countries and societies that experimented with different political systems, an Islamic and Communist one, in which people were gradually crushed by the repressive political apparatus. It is a film that resonates with the recent events in Iran, where women are fighting again for their rights, just as they did in 1979. Their cry now, even if not present in the film, expresses what Zahra and Maria also want: "Zan, Zendegi, Azadi!" — "Woman, Life, Freedom!" ' - Vlad PETRI
