Program Note
Zahra, a huge football fan from Tehran, faces a repeated ordeal. All she did was to go to the stadium to watch a football game she loves. Since 1981, Iran has banned women from the stadiums. For Zahra who is full of energy and mischief, football is her entire life and she can never give it up. She disguises herself as a man to go to the stadium and post her situation on social media to raise interest, but the wall of reality is too high. Eventually she witnesses a moment of change, yet she can’t help but feel hurt. While allowing the audience to witness the scenes of discrimination that Iranian women face, The Football Aficionado is filled with the presence of a woman who fiercely runs toward what she loves.
