Singing for women is illegal in Iran, but Shima and her Death Metal band don't care.

Woah. This is an underground film about an underground band that risks everything to seek asylum. I love the renegade spirit of this film. I love that the lead is the frontwoman in a death metal band. I love that this is a voice we normally don’t hear. I have not stopped thinking about this since I watched it the first time.
