NO LONGER PLAYING
LALEH is based on a true story of a beautiful, brilliant, Ph.D. student, a young Iranian girl Laleh Seddigh, an underdog struggling against all odds to break through the male dominated Car Racing clique in Iran. She faced the biggest challenge of her life, not on the race track but on her path to getting there by confronting the old traditions, such as family pressure to get married, a suitor from the Silicon Valley, back stabbing friends, drivers who ran her off the track, and right wing politicians. The Car Racing Federation believed her ambition was inappropriate for a woman in an Islamic society, so they did all they could to force her out of car racing. Nevertheless, she continued fighting against right wing politicians and professional drivers even under the threat of her life, over seven years of her life. She believed… “standing up against injustice is priceless”. This film is entertaining and inspiring movie to motivate a younger generation with “hope and faith” all over the world to give them the strength to fight for their dreams and rights. The gripping car racing sequences and triumph of will over oppression make this the “feel good” film of the year.
