(Dark Red) Afghanistan  ·  2017  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  20'  ·  o.v. Persian/Dari

A young married woman who falls in love with a young draper. He asks her to run away with him, but destiny says otherwise.

Selected in the 2018 Open Doors short film program

With “Dark Red” the filmmaker tells a story of empowerment in which, despite all appearances, an emancipated woman chooses her own fate. Through her everyday gesture and her own safe space she creates at home with her craft, the protagonist finds her own way to freedom away from what men expect from her.
