Women Without Men


An extraordinarily beautiful first feature film by Shirin Neshat. "Looking at Iran from Neshats point of view allows us to see the larger picture and realize that the human community resembles different organs of one body, created from a common essence."

This Glorious Quest



Bill's favorite advert. He wishes he had been cast for it. It has now been updated and extended...

Still strove with his last ounce of courage
