Summary In 1979, the Islamic Revolution not only threw the Shah out of Iran, it also turned the vibrant local cinema scene on its head. Filmmakers had to learn how to make films in a strictly Islamic environment. How they met the challenge of making films with chador-clad leading ladies and prohibitions on filming within the puritanical strictures of Islam is revealed in this program. Iranian filmmakers proved that success can be had without resorting to Hollywood-style productions. (From the UK, in English and Farsi) (Documentary Series) (Final) PG
