Full Plot

Remis is the film about a young female journalist detained in July 1999 and charged with treason and blasphemy, then held in solitary confinement for more than two months at the notorious Tohid Prison in Tehran. Blindfolded, covered from head to foot in a chador, and forced to sit facing the wall through grueling interrogation sessions day after day, Camelia uses the only resources at her disposal - her wits, her beautiful hands, and her feminine charms - to seduce her interrogator and gain her freedom. Camelia's story takes place at a moment in Iranian history when the democratic reforms established by President Mohammad Khatami led to a reactionary backlash and clampdown on the press. Camelia is portrayed as someone driven by personal ambition and a desire for freedom, but who also puts her life on the line in the pursuit of her ideals. Hers is a tale fraught with moral ambivalence, deception, and compromise; her "freedom" is always relative, and not without cost. Elahe Massumi Remis is a film inspired by the book "Camelia, Save Yourself by Telling the Truth". A Memoir of Iran, by Camelia Entekhabifard. It is the story of a courageous woman who does not submit herself to the oppression of her government, but stands up for her rights and fights for her liberty. She is a woman who can be considered a symbol of that longing for freedom, democracy and a better life, which today is spreading throughout North Africa and the Middle East. Camelia is a young journalist who was charged with treason and blasphemy, then held in solitary confinement in a prison. Blindfolded, covered from head to toe in a chador, and forced to sit facing a wall through grueling daily interrogation, she uses the only resources at her disposal - her intellect, her feminine charms and her hands, to seduce her interrogator. Finally they fall for each other. But realizing that it is a hopeless love, Camelia uses him as a way to flee Iran and gain her freedom. EHYM Plot not found
