It's Always Late for Freedom (2006)
Regions: Middle East
Topics: Economic Development / Poverty
This film looks at the social problems of addiction, poverty and divorce
that face Iranian society, through the stories of three boys in the
Tehran House of Correction.
The portrait of three teenage boys being held in a youth corrections centre in Teheran, It's Always Late for Freedom depicts the distress of a generation sacrificed on the altar of Iran’s profound social problems. Hardcore drugs, poverty, violence… these young men, hardly more than boys, seem more like victims than perpetrators. Entirely immersed in the everyday life of the prison, filmmaker Mehrdad Oskouei (The Other Side of Burka) won the young men’s trust, and they hold nothing back of their hurts, frustrations, hopes and confusion. The camera records their childish schemes, conversations with family, and the routine of prison life with intimate close-ups of faces and bodies that reveal their secret pain. A gripping story of childhood laid bare.
Independent filmmaker and photographer Mehrdad Oskouei produced
and directed the film. His previous documentary, Nose, Iranian Style,
was nominated as the Golden Movie Squad DOC U! Award at the
2005 International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
