Permission (Araghe Sard) (12A)

Thursday 5th December 2019 - 8:00 pm - 10:15 pm, Palmer Building

Afrooz, captain of the Iran ‘futsal’ (indoor soccer) team uses star sporting skills, winning a place in the Asian Nations Cup. Her estranged TV star husband invokes an ancient law allowing him the power to deny her leaving the country. The battles that follow are full of anger, sadness, hunger for justice, with explosive scenes, ferocious exchanges – and stonewall frustration.

Iran 2018 – Persian with subtitles – directed by Soheil Beiraghi with Baran Kosari, Amir Jadidi, Leili Rashidi, Hoda Zeinolabedin – 85 mins

Rashidi is terrific as the fast-talking advocate and Jadidi nails it as the reptilian husband – VARIETY

Exceptionally well crafted, Cold Sweat is an uncompromising look at the inequities of Iranian society, with a clear-eyed intimacy that recalls the best works of Asghar Farhadi and Jafar Panahi – IMDB
