GX- Googoosh Iran's Daughter (DVD)
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds
Quantity in Basket: None
Googoosh was Iran's most famous and beloved pop singer until the 1979 Islamic Revolution silenced her and all female vocalists, branding them as "temptresses" and forbidding them to sing publicly in the presence of men or to make recordings.
Two years in the making, this impressionistic documentary film offers a unique look at Iranian culture and modern history through the life of this pop-cultural phenomenon.
From her beginnings as a little girl compelled to assist her father in his nightclub act, through child stardom, to a full-fledged adult career of unprecedented scope, silence and resurgence; GOOGOOSH: Iran's Daughter uses interviews, historical analysis, and striking performance footage to locate the singer/actress in the midst of Iran's political, social, and cultural transformation.
