Director: Mohamad Rasoulof
"A suspenseful and moving portrait of modern censorship." - indieWIRE
Arrested just before completion and finished in clandestine circumstances, Good Bye is Mohammad Rasoulof's searing indictment of the plight of women in contemporary Iran.
In a decaying Tehran permanently on edge, Noora's world is beginning to constrict. Prevented from working by the local authorities and alone after her journalist husband fled the regime, she embarks on a desperate quest to illegally leave the country.
A masterwork of sustained tension, Good Bye portrays with vividness and suspense the unrelenting daily grind of repression in a rigidly authoritarian society.
Winner of Best Director in Cannes' Un Certain Regard section.
