Institute History

  • 2006 Rawi Middle East Screenwriters Lab in Jordan


NEYSHAPOOR is the story of Iran on the brink of Revolution. It is seen through the eyes of a young girl, Cimeen, who makes what will be her last visit to her grandmother's orchard in the North-eastern province of Neyshapoor as the Islamic Lunar Calendar and the Persian Solar Calendar collide.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
