Woman is not born, but rather becomes a woman.” - Simone De Beauvoir
As an example of astonishing
visual poignancy, “The Day I became a Woman” is the globally celebrated
debut of Marziyeh Meshkini, a young Iranian filmmaker bringing her rich and
diversified national cinema to bear on an enduring global concern, in a new
crescendo of memorable subtlety and grace.
“The Day” is repeated in three
consecutive episodes—the memorial registers of childhood, adolescence, and old
age—when three stages of “becoming” a woman is culturally manufactured and
socially registered. Between Simone De Beauvoir and Marziyeh Meshkini,
generations of women (and men), from all cultures around the world, will have
much to learn and even more to achieve.
