This screening will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Elahe Esmaili, an Award-winning documentary filmmaker. MA graduate in Directing from the National Film and Television School in the UK, and a BA from Tehran University of Art in Iran.

In the city of Qom, the most restricted city in Iran, there are many restrictions on human rights such as mandatory hijab to assure sexual safety; Hossein (M, 30) grew up in this environment and experienced multiple sexual assaults by men, despite these measures. Due to stereotypes around masculinity, he never talked about it. With the support of his wife, Elahe, he now confronts the trauma.
