Screening of Going Up the Stairs

Art & Culture


The Doc House series continues with this one off screening on 18th October at the tiny lexi cinema of Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami's modern classic.  
Also included on the night is the short Féminin, Masculin, directed by Sadaf Foroughi.
Married at nine, on her wedding night Akram was so threatened with violence that she fainted. Fear of displeasing her husband drove her from school before she learned to read. Now a grandmother, and still living with her husband Heidar in Tehran, her knees hurt when she goes up the stairs. But upstairs is where she paints. She has already had a successful local exhibition, despite the fact that her husband berates her for using too much paint. Now Akram has been invited to Paris, but will he give her permission to go abroad for the first time?
