“The Football Aficionado” is the story of today’s generation of women who without any pretension tries to claim equal rights between men and women. As directors of this movie, who are both supporters of gender equality and football lover, we have great admiration for the courage and resistance of Zahra; the character of our film; and her generation.

We strongly believe that by presenting the struggles of a young Iranian woman of the new generation, the story becomes a significant page of the history of the Iranian women’s movement. In our eyes, under such circumstances, it is our duty as independent filmmakers to be the voice of brave Iranian women and not let their efforts to be unheard.

We believe that the film would have a powerful impact and as FIFA World Cup is going to be held on November, the film can attract many audiences and spread the word efficiently.
