8TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL FILM
New England Premiere: NOSE, IRANIAN STYLE
Iran, documentary, 53 minutes
Iran is the world leader in rhinoplasty, with an estimated 60,000 to 70,000 operations each year
March 15 | 7:30 PM
Documentary filmmaker Mehrdad Oskouei considers the epidemic of nose jobs in contemporary Iran, the world leader in rhinoplasty with an estimated 60,000 to 70,000 operations each year. In a country that discourages personal expression and disdains Western culture, young Iranians eagerly change their noses to model images in European and American fashion magazines. With a light touch, Oskouei listens to patients and surgeons comment on this enigmatic phenomenon.
