Farhad Zamani – Googoosh: Iran’s Daughter (2000)


Iranian pop star Googoosh was an unparalleled star in Iranian music until the 1979 Islamic revolution when female pop stars were forbidden to perform. This documentary takes a look back at Googoosh’s Elvis like fame before she was silenced, from her days as a child star to the end of her career, while also viewing this history in the context of women’s rights in the Middle East.
