The Sealed Soil
Marva Nabili, Iran, 1977o
18-year-old Rooey-Bekheir, who lives in the countryside, is to be married; however, she has already rejected several candidates. With her quiet but persistent resistance, she disturbs those around her. Amidst the insistence on old customs, traditional village life is nevertheless subject to change. A modern settlement being built across the road heralds new possibilities.
