L’ennui
(Khastegi)

by Bahman BOTAMEDIAN

sisi

Khastegi (Tedium) is set in Tehran and tells the story of seven Iranian transsexualswho live pieces of their own lives on the screen. Boys who like to be girls and a girl with a boy’s spirit and energy! Their spirits are not at one with their bodies, and this is a problem more forceful and burdensome in Iranian society with its traditional precepts and tradition of patriarchy. One can sense the depth of their loneliness and tedium when one sees that they are not accepted even by their own families. These are young people estranged from their own bodies and spirits, and exhausted by this estrangement from themselves and a society that gives no right whatsoever to them.
