World premiere: Berlinale 2023 / Forum
Through a series of letters, BETWEEN REVOLUTIONS tells the story of Zahra and Maria, who met at university in Bucharest in the 1970's. When the hope of political change draws Zahra home to Iran they are forced apart. For the next decade their only way to communicate is through letters. Divided by two revolutions - the revolution against the Shah's dictatorship in Iran and the one in Romania against the Ceaușescu regime - their words describe women struggling to be heard, countries moving in different directions, and two souls united in friendship.
