Nessa by Loghman Khaledi (Iran, 2012, 52 min.). All Nessa wants is her independence and to become a famous actress, but this cinéma vérité portrait reveals the high price of rebelling against her conservative Kurdish-Iranian family, especially her controlling, violent brother. Fascinating interviews with family members reveal they believe in Nessa’s dream, but they limit her freedom because they are worried about their neighborhood reputation.
