Ballad of a White Cow

Part of the Features Strand


Co-directed by Maryam Moghadam and Behtash Sanaeeha, the film is in the vein of social realism appreciated in contemporary Iranian cinema. Moghadam (Jafar Panahi’s Closed Curtain) plays Mina, a widow on a quest for justice. This brings her into contact with Reza (Alireza Sanifar), one of the judges who condemned her husband to his execution. As two lives intersect, she seeks to clear her dead husband’s name. Both Moghadam and Sanifar deliver emotionally compelling performances. Ballad of a White Cow competed at the Berlin International Film Festival where it was recognised with an Audience Award.
