Directed by: Jafar Panahi
Synopsis: Football - or soccer - has been on everyone’s mind this summer because of the spectacular tournament of tournaments, the World Cup. For some, this global extravaganza of athleticism is more than a sporting event; it is a cultural phenomenon. Questions of politics and nationalities are ever-present. Iranian director Jafar Panahi, never afraid to poke into difficult subject matter, has centred his engaging new film around an explosive contemporary issue: in his country, it is illegal for women to attend soccer games at the stadiums. Offside is not just about women being banned from matches, it is about their rights in a Muslim society.

Production Company: Jafar Panahi Productions
