Directed by Ali Soozandeh (Austria/Germany, 2017, 90 min.). Digital.

Artfully animated with a rotoscope technique, Tehran Taboo tells the interlocking stories of four residents of the Iranian metropolis. Pari is a young mother who resorts to prostitution to support her son while her husband is in jail. She divulges her secret to her pregnant neighbor, Sara, who is dealing with struggles of her own: she wants to get a job so her family can move out of her in-laws’ house, but her husband insists that she stay home with the baby. Meanwhile, a young musician named Babak has a one-night stand with a girl who is about to get married, and he must come up with some fast cash to get her out of trouble. These characters are bound by a shared search for sexual and personal freedom in a city where tradition still writes the rules.
