Shahrzaad’s Tale is a story of a lost era and a forgotten star of pre-revolutionary Iranian cinema. Shahrzaad is the pseudonym of early 60s popular Iranian actor, also a published writer/poet and Iran's first woman filmmaker. She saw her fortunes plummet dramatically after the Revolution of 1979. Today after more than 30 years of being out of work, in her late sixties, Shahrzaad is a wandering homeless. A tale of an incredible female artist caught in three decades of political turmoil in the cultural landscape of contemporary Iran.
