Sepideh 2013 All ages
Sepideh, an Iranian teenager, must overcome the constraints placed on her gender in order to follow her passion to study astronomy and become an astronaut. Filmed over several years, Sepideh is an unusually intimate portrait of scientific dreams and family politics – highlighted most intensely in an incredible conversation between Sepideh and her uncle in which he threatens to kill her if she does anything dishonourable.
