Rūzī kih zan shudam The day I became a woman ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in Persian and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Three portraits of women at three stages of life in Iran: a nine-year-old girl is told she can no longer play with boys because she is now a "woman", a young wife who enters a bicycle race against her husband's wishes, and an elderly woman who gains money and the freedom to do what she wishes with it
Shirin Neshat the woman moves ( Visual )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Shirin Neshat's work addresses political, sociological, psychological, and spiritual dimensions, and particularly the situation of women living in oppressive societies. As an Iranian living abroad, her works often question both the political powers and ideological structures of the Islamic revolution, and the notions of 'orientalism' and femininity. Many of her works portray abstract oppositions based around gender and society, the individual and the group, governed by a fluidly poetic aesthetic language that is timeless and universal

" 'Women without men' is Shirin Neshat's independent film adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur's magic realist novel. The story 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'état brought down the democratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and reinstalled the Shah to power."

Expressing the inexpressible Shirin Neshat by Shirin Neshat ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An acclaimed photographer, filmmaker, and video artist, Iranian-born Shirin Neshat addresses the complex forces shaping the identity of Muslim women throughout the world and explores the social, political, and psychological dimensions of women's experiences. In this program, she explicates her haunting video installations Shadow Under the Web; Turbulent; Soliloquy; Rapture; and Fervor, as well as her seminal series of still images, The Women of Allah. In addition, she discusses being both an insider and an outsider in two different cultures, the narrative power of cinema, sexual taboos in Islamic society, the tension between traditional and modern values, the nature of expression when expression itself is forbidden, and the quiet strength and bravery of women that prompts them to rebel against repression
