The Queen and I

Thirty-two years ago, Nahid Persson Sarvestani took part in the revolution which brought down Iran’s monarchy driving the Shah and his queen, Farah Diba, into exile. Betrayed by the revolution, Nahid was also forced into exile.

In the Queen and I, Nahid and Farah Diba come together in Paris. The former queen opens her home to the filmmaker and a unexpected personality and world emerges.  The two women have intense moments of distrust of the other. Yet courageously they go forward and a journey of  two women in exile unfolds and they discover they have more in common than either of them could envision.www.realreel.se
