“Mitra Tabrizian is, by any standards, a major artist and an important player on the UK arts stage. Her Tate Britain exhibition of 2008, This is That Place, which I was proud to host as the gallery’s then director, was an exceptional critical and public success...A cultural and cinematic milestone, Gholam is the first British film to spotlight an Iranian community...It is a mesmeric and important film…”

“The film script, direction and the performance of the main character are excellent. The unique style of the filmmaking produced a mesmerising film - honest and beautifully photographed.”
