Iran's 2001 presidential election is the subject of this documentary from outspoken director Rakhshan Bani-Etemad. Her remarkable look inside Iranian society offers a profile of young, middle-class women dedicating themselves to a president up for re-election, as well as the story of Arezoo Bayat--a poor, single mother whose own campaign for the presidency is a quixotic endeavor and a struggle to break through the barriers of long-standing traditions and oppressions. 65 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Farsi; Subtitles: English; featurette; more. In Farsi with English subtitles.
