Woodgirls - A Duet for a Dream

Azadeh Bizargiti | CZ / IR | 2021 | 75min

The carpenters Leila and Sedigheh have chosen a profession that is considered extremely masculine in the traditional societies of the Iran. Licences and formal training in such trades are inaccessible for women. With self-taught skills, guts, and determination, they pursue their dream and are not only fighting for themselves, but also want to enable other women to practise a craft.
