Negar Mona Alizadeh, Bilal Yasar, Arash Marand

This striking animated first feature from Iranian-born Ali Soozandeh gives a rare glimpse into Tehran’s stratified society, in which sex, drugs and corruption are concealed beneath the veil of morality and propriety.

Obliterating the metaphoric storytelling style of the Iranian New Wave, Tehran Taboo is an ensemble piece that follows the interweaving stories of three women and a male musician. A combination of rotoscoped animation and an eye-popping colour palette give the film’s aesthetics an unique and compelling comic book feel.

Lively and captivating while unravelling the unknown stories behind a traditional Iranian society, Tehran Taboo has earned comparisons to the likes of Marjane Satrapis’ Persepolis.
