In Displaced Allegories: Post-Revolutionary Iranian Cinema, Negar
Mottahedeh shows that post-Revolutionary Iranian filmmakers were forced
to create a new visual language for conveying meaning to audiences. She
argues that the Iranian film industry found creative ground not in the
negation of government regulations but in the camera’s adoption of the
modest, averted gaze. In the process, the filmic techniques and
cinematic technologies were gendered as feminine and the national cinema
was produced as a woman’s cinema.
