About the Film

Shayda, a brave Iranian mother, finds refuge in an Australian women's shelter with her six-year-old daughter. Over Persian New Year, they take solace in Nowruz rituals and new beginnings, but when her estranged husband re-enters their lives, Shayda's path to freedom is jeopardized.

The Reviews Are In

"One of the most masterful debuts of a filmmaker that I've seen in a long time."

Claudia Puig, FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

"The greatest asset of “Shayda" is its unmistakably feminine spirit of perseverance, one that runs wild and free in this promising debut."

Tomris Laffly, Variety
