What does it mean to be young and free in the Islamic Republic of Iran? Shot clandestinely throughout Tehran, Dog Sweat provides an insightful new look into the lives of Iranian youth.


Using the subversive urgency of cinéma vérité, the lives of six young people unfold in present day Iran. A feminist finds herself in an affair with a married man; new lovers search for a place to be physically intimate; a gay man is faced with an arranged marriage; a female pop singer risks exposure; and a grief-stricken son lashes out at fundamentalists. Shot clandestinely throughout Tehran, Dog Sweat, provides an insightful new look into the lives of Iranian youth.
