Iran’s most celebrated female filmmaker, Rakhshan Banietemad, screens two passionate and fascinating explorations of the impact of the recent electoral processes in her country. We Are Half of Iran's Population (Ma Nimi Az Jameiate Iranim, 2009, video, 42 min) films a diverse coalition of women’s rights activists. In the world premiere of See You Tomorrow Elina! (Farda Mibinamet Elina, 2013, DVD, 52 min), Banietemad returns to the kindergarten where she had enrolled her daughter Baran – now an actress and activist who has since appeared in many of Banietemad’s narrative films. The film compares the violence witnessed by Iranian kindergarten students during the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s with that of the recent political protests following the controversial 2009 elections. Jack H. Skirball Series. World Premiere. In person: Rakhshan Banietemad.
