Film Daughter | Dokhtar Movie

Golden George Award for Best Film at the 38th Moscow International Film Festival

Daughter is a 2016 Iranian drama film directed by Reza Mirkarimi. It was screened in the Competition

section at the Moscow International Film Festival 2016 and International Film Festival of India 2016.

It won the Golden Peacock Award for the Best Film at International Film Festival of India 2016,

and the Golden George Award for Best Film at the 38th Moscow International Film Festival.

It was also the best film in the 15th Dhaka International Film Festival.

The story depicts the modern Iran, in which the call for freedom and independence

among women is stronger than ever. It also highlights the sharp contrast of social

behaviour between the developed cities, such as Tehran, and rural areas. While the

movie includes several heartbreaking references to inequality of men and women,

exploring the unhealthy relationship of family members with a feminist approach

helps the audience to see how much more the movie has to offer. The movie

introduces the father of Setare as a stereotypical Iranian father, who is simultaneously

kind and strict, the mother, a sentimental woman who has the role of explaining the

father’s harsh overprotectiveness of the daughter, and the daughter who is like

a lioness in chains, thirsty for every bit of freedom.
