The IRANIAN JOURNEY (Maysoon Pachachi,1999) is a documentary about Ma’soomeh, the first Iranian and perhaps the only long-distance female bus driver of the Middle East in the year 1999. Whether Ma’soomeh is the first female driver of the Muslim world is far less important than the fact that she is a bus driver in a presumably patriarchic society. This film was distributed by Women Make Movies. Read more of Offscreen's special issue on Iranian cinema.
