Voicelessness is a delicate story of determination and hope, told through mingled voices, viewpoints and times, powerfully poignant in its simplicity. It is created by exciting new Iranian director, writer and performer Azade Shahmiri.
How will future generations judge our own era?
It is 2070. A young woman struggles to discover the truth behind the mysterious disappearance of her grandfather, more than 50 years earlier. But in the dystopian society that the world has become, in which freedom of expression is stifled, who will admit what really happened?
