Get inside the real Iran through the films of these cutting-edge Iranian filmmakers, who risk censorship and worse to expose and reveal life inside their country. Letters in the Wind tells the fictional story of Taghi, a naïve young soldier from a small village who carries the recorded messages of his fellow recruits to their loved ones -- a mission fraught with unforeseen obstacles. In the documentary Our Times, Rakhshan Bani-Etemad -- one of Iran's courageous female directors -- offers a privileged look inside a recent presidential election, in which 712 candidates ran for the office. Among them was a 25-year-old mother, whose identity as a divorced woman made her prospects dim.
