Negar Tahsili | Wee-men or Women?!

Negar Tahsili, Wee-men or Women?! 2008. Sound, 26:00

Social body experience from a woman’s perspective in Tehran is the focus of Tahsili’s documentary films. Her work Wee-men or Women?! follows a female-only Tehran taxi driver around town — potential dangers of public transportation for women traveling alone are being discussed along the way with the driver. Concurrently, self-defense courses for women are featured. At the surprise ending of the film, the attack comes from where it is not expected; and neither special transportation nor self-defense can protect against this powerful assailant.
