A Tajik Woman | Chicago Reader

A Tajik Woman

Chicago-based film and video artist Mehrnaz Saeed-Vafa (Ruins Within) directed this 20-minute video documentary (1994) about Muslim, Farsi-speaking women in the U.S.—many of them political exiles from Iran, Tajikistan, or Afghanistan—and their problems reconciling their American identity with their religion and culture. A personal and thoughtful work, charged with feeling.
