Iranian culture today, is not quite as idyllic as the
nation's Islamic fundamentalist government want the rest of the
world to believe. In this political documentary (Iran, Veiled
Appearances) the director attempts to redefine Western (primarily
United States') preconceptions of the powerful Middle Eastern
country by presenting the two main opposing factions within Iranian
society: the current Islamic leadership and its supporters of the
29-year-old Revolution versus the repressed younger generation
espousing their own form of revolution -- democratic reform.
theocratic power elite struggles to maintain control over the hearts
and minds of the nation's citizenry, the government's dissenters
engage in simple, yet groundbreaking, acts of civil disobedience
that could very well result in imprisonment, torture, or death or
any combination of the three.
“Iran veiled appearances” shows a culturally and
socially fractured society. The filmmaker’s eye has viewed the
country from many angles and created a multifaceted film, in image
of a country where the religious fervour of some contrasts with the
desire for freedom of others.
