One of the first Iranian films I watched-Offside directed by Jafar Panahi. A brilliant film for me as I love football and go to matches regularly and a real wake-up call to realise that women in Iran are not allowed to attend football matches.
“Offside” is a comedy film about a group of Iranian girls who attempt to enter Tehran’s Azadi Stadium by disguising themselves as men. It was filmed at the actual 2006 World Cup qualifying match between Iran and Bahrain at the Azadi Stadium which Iran won to duly qualify.
A little off-beat but definitely worth a watch!
