We Are Half of Iran's Population - Ma nimi az jam'iat Iranim (2009)
This is a movie by the famous Iranian filmmaker, Rakhshan Bani Etemad which was made available online in June 2009 around the time of the controversial Iranian elections. It was never permitted a public screening in Iran.
A loose follow-up to Our Times, Bani-Etemad's documentary short was made during the months before last year's controversial elections in Iran.
Filming a diverse coalition of women's rights activists discussing their opinions on pressing contemporary issues, Bani-Etemad asked three of the four presidential candidates to view the footage for comment, with Mahmoud Ahmedinejad declining to participate.
A number of the activists seen in the film were later arrested in the post-election protests. -- IMDb
