Kamin Mohammadi: Life in Authoritarian Regimes

Listen in pop-out player

Kamin Mohammadi uses her own and her family's history in Iran to argue that life - particularly private life - under an authoritarian regime is lived more creatively.

She describes the complicated and sometimes intricate behaviour which is required to navigate - creatively - around restrictions on private lives. And she explains how everything from the newest technology to shared taxis are called in aid of young people wishing to sit close and steal caresses.

Producer: Giles Edwards.
