Shadi is included on the same DVD as Siah Bâzi

SHADI is a companion film to SIAH BAZI.

Moved by the plight of the "Joy Makers" world-renowned French stage director, Ariane Mnouchkine invites the acting troupe to perform with her Parisian avant-garde improvisational stage ensemble, Theatre du Soleil.

The documentary follows young comedic actress Shadi as she battles for her domineering husband's permission to travel outside Iran for the first time, and later finds herself caught between the differing artistic visions of her Iranian director and Mnouchkine while performing in Paris.
