Summary "Acclaimed photographer Shirin Neshat makes her directorial debut with this incisive and sumptuously filmed reflection on the pivotal moment in history that led directly to the Islamic revolution and the Iran we know today. Women Without Men chronicles the intertwining lives of four Iranian women during the summer of 1953; a cataclysmic moment in Iranian history when an American led, British backed coup d'etat brought down the democratically elected Prime Minister. Over the course of several days the four women are brought together against the backdrop of political social turmoil."--Container.
