Film - 'My Tehran for Sale'

Join the Center for Middle Eastern Studies for the awe-inspiring film, "My Tehran for Sale." Watch the trailer here.

From the Libertas Film Magazine review:

An important film even before the arrest of its lead actress...

In what will become an ever more self-referential turn, Vafamehr plays Marzieh, an avant-garde actress seeking to expatriate because her plays have been banned by the censors. She is well educated, middle class, and ideologically moderate, none of which are much of an advantage in contemporary Iranian society. Navigating the Kafkaesque immigration process for years, Marzieh is hoping to soon liquidate all her possessions to finance her move. Of course, complications arise.
