    Iranian Movies On Sundance Channel

    Saturday - May 15, 2004     01:15 PM

    At Five in the Afternoon

    directed by Samira Makhmalbaf


    107 MINS, Color

    With sharp wit and elegant images, this film by Iran's Samira Makhmalbaf (THE APPLE) tells the story of Noqreh (Agheleh Rezaie), a contemporary woman in post-Taliban Kabul. Now allowed to attend school, Noqreh dreams of becoming the president of the republic of Afghanistan. However, her rigid father takes a dim view of the new changes in Kabul, a city he believes is rife with blasphemy. Based on a novel by the filmmaker's father, noted director Moshen Makhmalbaf, At Five in the Afternoon won the Jury Prize at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. TVPG (AC) May 12 9:00pm; 15 11:15pm; 30 9:30pm
