Dog Sweat (2011)

Shot clandestinely in Iran, and using the subversive urgency of cinéma vérité, the lives of six young people intertwine in present day Iran. Misunderstood by their families and repressed by conservative Islamic society, they act out their personal desires behind closed doors. A feminist finds herself in an affair with a married man; new lovers search for a place to be physically intimate; a gay man is faced with an arranged marriage; a female pop singer risks exposure; and a grief-stricken son lashes out at fundamentalists.
