One Thousand Teardrops
Fateme Ahmadi | Iran/UK | 17 mins | 2014
On her first day of school, little Louly is faced with a question: what should she wear? The ugly school uniform or whatever she wants? Luckily, she is visited by a magic teardrop-keeper who helps her make a choice by telling the story of how the women of her nation, Iran, have strived to answer this question for 200 years. Narrated by Shappi Khorsandi, this documentary takes a humourous and unique look at a very long debated topic.
