Going Up the Stairs

Going Up the Stairs

Iran, 52 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subject: Documentary
Language: Persian/ French English Sub-Titles

Akram is an illiterate 50 year old Iranian woman who became a painter unexpectedly when her young grandson asked her to work on a drawing; that simple act tapped into an explosion of powerful, primitive and colorful paintings, which she hid under the carpet from possibly disapproving eyes. She finally tells her Western educated children about her work and they arrange for her to have an exhibition in far-off Paris. The only hitch in this plan is that Akram must obtain permission from her husband in order to attend.
