Still from They Anahita


Gender, acceptance and growing up neutral. 

Iranian director Anahita Ghazvinizadeh explains how her art becomes queer activism

Iranian director Ghazvinizadeh's first full length feature - produced by acclaimed Top of the Lake director Jane Campion - tells the story of J, a gender neutral teen trying to make sense of a world that isn't trying to understand but rather assign them to a certain mould. 

The Dazed article features a full interview with Anahita on the status of gender in her home country of Iran, her stance on the Bathroom Bill and how Arthouse cinema is the perfect vehicle to reach and educate mass audiences.
