Hossein Neshati’s doc drama is an unflinching look at the uniquely female cost of war in Syria – more specifically female-headed households.
The documentary seeks to depict the lives of women in war-torn Syria who, after the martyrdom of their husbands, become breadwinners and have to earn a living by working in a mineral water factory in Aleppo, Syria.
With the production been kicked off a year ago covered by long-term field research, ‘Bright Shadows’ is currently ready to go on screen at international film festivals in two 30-minute versions narrated in Arabic. The doc is also prepared in a 42-min version narrated in Farsi for premiere on small screens.
‘Bright Shadows’ is a production of House of Islamic Revolution Documentary.
