Film - Secret Ballot with Dr Imad El-Anis

This event is a film and debate session based around the film Secret Ballot.

This political satire by Payami offers a snapshot of Iranian discourse on political practices in Iran. The film follows the story of a young Iranian woman who tirelessly pursues her function as a government bureaucrat in charge of local voting on a remote Iranian island.

As she pulls up to the shore of the island a soldier is charged, largely against his will, with assisting the relentless and idealistic bureaucrat as she pursues every vote on the island. What follows is a highly intelligent, unusual, captivating and often humorous electoral adventure across the island’s dusty desert.

Following the conclusion of the film students will have the opportunity to discuss the important issues that arise from the film.
