Dressage

A tale of youthful rebellion and moral hypocrisy in contemporary Iran. Winner of the Jury Award in Berlin Film Festival’s Generation Section.

"For Iranian teenager Golsa and her group of bored, upper-class friends, it seems like a bit of fun to rob a local corner shop. But the hijinks quickly become serious when they realise they left behind security footage that could incriminate them. Bullied by her “friends” into retrieving the footage, Golsa hides it at her favourite place, the horse stables where she rides. Refusing to hand over the footage, Golsa is ostracised by her rich friends and finds herself at odds with her family; the stables become her only sanctuary. She must confront the hypocrisy and moral dilemmas of society, and try to right the wrongs she’s had a hand in. An insightful tale of ethics, class division, rebellion and youth in modern Iran." (Sydney Film Festival)

"Dressage" powerfully illustrates the consequences of growing social divisions within contemporary Iranian society and indicts a middle and upper class that have lost their moral centre.
