Importance of Being a Woman



After her second marriage, a prolific actress is hesitant about becoming a mom again. She decides to direct a documentary film. After an open call in her Instagram page, she brings a number of Iranian women from different backgrounds in front of her camera and challenges them with her questions on being a mom. Now she is the observer and the Iranian women are the stars shining on the silver screen.


Director’s View:

When I first started making this documentary film, I believed that we, the women, have one great miracle in our creation: being a mom. But when the film was completed, I realized that the greatest miracle is being a woman. We, the women, carry the most surprising mysteries of the creation all the time!
