About Pearls on the Ocean Floor:
"Facing issues of identity, gender, and social restrictions, the female artists in Pearls on the Ocean Floor speak with a compelling quiet reserve and a striking boldness. Their work reveals encounters between religion and secular modernity, change and tradition, contemporary life and history. These brave women seem to know now more than ever that their voice must be heard and their people understood. Through their words and their art, the real Iran will be discovered and this important historical moment will be documented."
Robert Adanto is an independent documentary filmmaker. His debut feature-length
documentary, The Rising Tide, premiered at the United Kingdom's China
Now! Festival and has been screening throughout U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia and
