Gordāfarīd is a short documentary inspired by the erupted political-feminist movement in Iran.
Gordafarid is a heroine and a feminine figure of wisdom and courage in Shāhnāmeh, the most significant Persian literary work of epic poetry; a warrior who fought courageously against the raiders of Iran.
The series portrays the enduring fight for "woman, life, liberty" in contemporary Iran and echoes the liberty-seeking voice of women in Iran, which has never been extinguished despite constant suppression.
Women in Iran have battled against the systemic patriarchy in both their family and society at large in various forms, whether through standing against social restrictions and inequality or fighting against deeply established injustice in Islamic Sharia law. Women are on the frontline of redefining the modern identity of Iran.
Gordafarid is a reverence to all the women of Iran who have risked their lives to fight for freedom and to end dictatorship.
