Our take

A tense and compelling look at grief and remorse, Ballad of a White Cow compassionately brings to light the ethical dilemmas facing women in contemporary Iran. Doubling as co-director and lead actor, Maryam Moghaddam embodies the steely resilience of one woman’s quest for justice against the odds.
