Pearls on the Ocean Floor is a thought-provoking documentary examining the lives of Iranian female artists living and working in and outside the Islamic Republic. This incisive study, featuring interviews with artists Shadi Ghadirian, Shirin Neshat and Parastou Forouhar, captures the uncertainty of this momentous time in Iran’s history. Speaking with grace and honesty, these women express what is seldom seen in the western media: unique individual perspectives regarding issues of identity, gender and the role that art plays in challenging the traditional stereotypes often associated with women in Iran.
