She takes up the fight and teams up with the world's first female space tourist, Anousheh Ansari.

  • Reveals in stark, day-to-day exchanges the inequality faced by women living in conservative Iran. And yet somehow, the film leaves you feeling inspired.

  • Like a real-life Wadjda speckled with absolutely stunning images of the night sky, Sepideh is yet another Human Rights Watch film that understands that the struggle for rights must build up from full articulation of a human being.
