Catalogue of Shirin Neshat short films. Neshat's films deal with the popular and stigmatized image of the veiled muslim woman, ranging from the 'erotic subservient' of the past to the 'violent gun-toting terrorist' of the present. Films like 'Unveiling and Women of Allah' (1993) calls into question dichotomies of "the 'liberated, global' West and the 'oppressive, provincial' East." According to Milani (the author), they "reflect the centrality of a woman's body in post revolutionary political discourse." - p.7.
