Acid Base – Shirin Eklasi, 15’ (Irão)
March 6 • 3:00pm • Room 2
A man is trying to obtain acid to throw at his wife’s face. The man he contacts leads him through dark corridors to someone who may provide it. But he doesn’t expect what he founds. In 2014, a proclamation by the authorities about the right use of the hijab has caused a wave of terror among Iranian women followed by a series of attacks with acid by religious extremists. This film highlights the victims who don´t allow us to forget this barbaric violence against them.
