From Iranian filmmakers Rakhshan Bani-Etemad (NARGESS; OUR TIMES) and Mohsen Abdolvahab comes a searing anti-war film presented in two parts. On the Iranian New Year of 1988, Gilaneh (Motamed Arya), a woman from the country whose only son Ishmael (Bahram Radan) is fighting in the Iran-Iraq war, takes a perilous trip into besieged Tehran with her pregnant daughter. Fifteen years later, on March 20, 2003, as another New Year approaches, fatigued Gilaneh cares for her bedridden son as TV newscasts cover America's opening attack on Baghdad.

Gilaneh by Rakhshan Beni-Etimad and Mohsen Abdolvahab. Iran, 84 min, 2005, Beta SP

;; Synopsis: ;;

The year is 1988, Iraqi bombs rain down on Tehran while Iranians celebrate the New Year. Gilaneh, a peasant widow whose son Ismaeel has gone off to war, travels with her pregnant daughter Maygol to Tehran. Terrified and uncertain of what they will find there, mother and daughter make the perilous trip into the capital city, just as its inhabitants are fleeing in the opposite direction.

Fifteen years later, the United States attacks Baghdad. Ismaeel has long since returned from the earlier war, his body devastated by chemical weapons. A weathered Gilaneh cares for him day and night. The television flashes with scenes of the new war in which Iraq is now the invaded and not the invader, but Gilaneh is too estranged from world affairs to pay attention. She has sacrificed everything for her children, but her own hopes and dreams have been aborted by war and she is marked with bitterness and regret. In Persian w/English subtitles

Mohsen Abdolvahab: Born in 1957 in Tehran, Mohsen Abdolvahab graduated from the IRIB University and began working as an editor in 1980. Since then he has made more than thirty documentary and fiction features, and has received a number of national and international awards; his documentary Hamsaran-e Haj-Abbas (The Wives of Haj Abbas, 2001) earned the Silver Wolf at the Amsterdam festival in 2001. His filmography includes: Attempt, (1989-1990), Searching for Labor in Two Shots (1991-1998), Lokh Mazar (2000), Hamsaran-e Haj-Abbas (The Wives of Haj Abbas, 2001), The Heritage of the Sun (2002).
