D: Mehrdad Oskouei | Iran | 76 min | Persian with English Subtitles | ARKANSAS PREMIERE

Starless Dreams follows a group of under 18-year-old Iranian girls taken into care for a variety of reasons, ranging from drug dealing and trafficking, to pick-pocketing and manslaughter. Director Oskouei pursued Iranian authorities for a period of seven years, urging them to allow him access to an imprisoned population, otherwise hidden from view. The result is an incredibly personal film about the dreams, nightmares and hopes of the young women in this all-female facility. Their individual stories reveal a desire to again be free, to lead normal lives, but the fear of what is waiting for them outside the walls is never far from their minds.
