Award winning film about the Iranian truth: 2+2=5

The film: In a drab, made up gray school with Iranian dress code and language Farsi governed by a strict authoritarian regime, an apparently unremarkable day is turned on its head following a seemingly ridiculous announcement. 

Disbelieving at first, the all male, identically uniformed pupils are informed that what they had always been taught as fact is no longer true. 

When the incredulous students speak out, what initially seems laughably absurd becomes desperately real as they are forced to question how far they will go to stand up for their beliefs. 

Two + Two is an allegory for the absurdness of dictatorship and tyranny - and the resilience of the human spirit.

Don’t ever give up logic in the name of politically correct!
