About OffsideJafar Panahi's Offside is a poignant yet playful look at the continued sublimation of women in Iran. A young girl (Shahi) is desperate to attend a World Cup qualifying match between Iran and Bahrain in a Tehran stadium; unfortunately, it has been illegal for women to attend sporting events in her country since the 1979 revolution. Dressing up as a boy, she sneaks in but is eventually caught and imprisoned in a makeshift holding pen monitored by a group of soldiers. She is joined in the pen by other girls who also attempted to watch the match. As the game goes on, the social ills of Iran become a dangerous topic of conversation, especially regarding the fate of the women, which could mean further imprisonment in a real jail, potential exile or fatal beatings from their family.
