I Have Sinned a Rapturous Sin
An essay filmed against the backdrop of lyrical images of feather plucking or drawing with chalk presents the clerical orders of Islamic women and how they rein in their impure desires. As a subversive element of Islamic fundamentalism, the director recites a poem by Iranian feminist writer Forough Farrokhzad.
Iranian director Maryam Tafakory (1987) works in London and addresses topics relating to female identity in a religious and political context. She experiments with the possibilities of visual narration and oscillations between reality and fiction.
