WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Relocating one of Lorca's best known works to rural Iran, Iranian stage and screen actor Shohreh Aghdashlo will be leading the cast as Bernarda Alba. Following her husband's funeral in rural Iran, powerful matriarch Bernarda Alba decrees to her five daughters that the household will enter a period of eight years mourning. The only one it seems will escape this fate is the eldest daughter, Angustias, who is already betrothed to the village's most eligible bachelor. In the strict confines of the house, jealousy and suppressed sexuality rise to the surface. As Bernada's oppression of her daughters increases it is more than the girls' liberty that is in danger.
