Iranian Cinema: Cold Sweat

Thu, Sept 12 / 7 pm
Directed by Soheil Beiraghi
2018, Iran, 85 min
Persian with English subtitles

Afrooz, whose Iranian women’s futsal team is off to play the finals in Malaysia, can’t board the plane — her husband hasn’t signed the permit for her to leave the country. Based on real cases of women athletes being denied clearance to travel, Soheil Beiraghi’s second feature is a timely and gripping account of the strict patriarchal laws that still exist and the fierce determination of the women attempting to fight against them. – Palm Springs International Film Festival

An ongoing series of Iranian films presented in conjunction with Amir Ganjavie, president of the Phoenix Cultural Centre of Toronto and CineIran – an annual festival of contemporary Iranian cinema in Toronto.

Reviews

An angry woman rails against the system in the punchy and timely Cold Sweat. Intelligently written, well performed and emotionally rewarding.
