Shirin is the passionate story of a passionate love told by Nezami, an Iranian 12th century poet and by Shirin herself to an audience of more than 110 actresses. The audience identifies with the heroine of the film they are watching, an audience that is both subject and object, an audience like no other.



“Shirin offers a feast for the bedazzled eye and a crash course in narrative obsession for the benumbed mind.”
