What cures women of sexual promiscuity? Eating lettuce, of course, at least according to one Islamic clergyman advising women on how to control their lust, as seen in Maryam Tafakory's film. Placed in counterpoint, fragments from Forough Farrokhzad’s poem Sin are read and written out in a celebration of sensuality.
