The Day I Become a Woman by M.Meshkini Pre-View + Zoom Debate
An all-female film. So a film just for women? Absolutely not. I would rather focus on the "reverse of the medal" and say a film, especially, for men. Hava, Ahoo, Hoora. Three women. Three rough diamonds that you cannot cut. Three wild flowers that you cannot pick. Three enchanting episodes of the female world, masterfully rendered with images of absolute beauty and full of poetry. What's more fascinating: an obedient woman or an independent and very determined woman? The answer ..... what is more: a flat and calm sea or a stormy sea?
Shot in the beautiful natural scenery of the iranian island of Kish.
The film won awards at the Venice Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, the Thessaloniki Film Festival, the Busan International Film Festival, the Oslo Films from the South Festival and the Chicago International Film Festival.
Writing for the New York Times, Stephen Holden called it a "stunner of a film" and "an astonishing directorial debut". Roger Ebert said that the three stories lack "the psychological clutter of Western movies", describing this fact as a strength.
