Melissa Chiu sits down with Iranian-born visual artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat. In the 90′s, Neshat made her mark in the art world with her intriguingly beautiful still images, “Women of Allah,” which combines photographs of Iranian women mixed with Persian calligraphy. She has just released her first feature film, “Women without Men.”

    Shirin is brave & talented. This is a time when woman and men too, in Iran,need to see their countrymen make a difference. Iran is a beautiful countrywith beautiful people waiting to break out. To be free to make films of their choice, take photos of their choice, for the world to see. Freedom with intelligence is a great gift. Shirin is impressive.

    This is a marvelous interview. I hope Neshat’s new film will be widely shown. Hers are extraordinary gifts.
