Shayda (2023) tells the story of Shayda, a brave Iranian mother, who finds refuge in a women’s shelter with her six-year-old daughter Mona. Over Persian New Year, Shayda and Mona find joy in Nowruz rituals and new beginnings, until a court order jeopardises their path to freedom. Drawn from personal experiences, Niasari’s debut feature is a portrayal of courage and compassion that captures the vulnerability and confliction of Shayda as she boldly reclaims her human rights: to divorce her husband, keep her child, and dress as she chooses.
