Sun 9th Jun:

A gripping social drama with particularly strong currency in the era of #TimesUp, Cold Sweat is based on real cases of Iranian sportswomen prevented from competing overseas by a law that requires husbands to grant permission. Baran Kosari is dynamite as Afrooz, a brilliant futsal (indoor soccer) player who’s stopped from boarding the flight to the Asian Cup final in Malaysia. It’s the start of a social, legal and bureaucratic nightmare, with Afrooz thwarted at every turn by soon to be ex husband Yaser, the smarmy and self righteous host of a TV show called The Good Old Days. Soheil Beiraghi’s outstanding second feature is told with tremendous passion, intelligence and urgency.
