Complete version of Khatami-era "Dream of Silk"

by maghshoosh on

The version posted above at the moment, seems to have about 10 interesting minutes of the film missing.  The following version in 5 segments seems to be the full documentary, so I'd suggest replacing the above w/ these:

1) //www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLTNZJNP_MY&fmt=22
2) //www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsYd3a-u4EE&fmt=22
3) //www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_wTjrURuYU&fmt=22
4) //www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPrbyMkMwk8&fmt=22
5) //www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMIl1iOhlaY&fmt=22

Also, notice that this film was made around 2002, namely during Khatami's term, which may explain the frankness w/ which the school girls express their frustrations.  Such a documentary could probably not be made today, and their frustrations would be even graver now.

Our women

by BabakNeekpey on

I trully  believe the WOMEN   particularly these women   are the ones to lead  future Iran;

 The "New Iran " will be formed and led   by  the  women.

One of the  girls  said"  our path is predtermained"  I hope she  sarts bringing about changes,

Simple and very informative interview.

PN   sooo much beauty in one place.
