Cul-de-sac 2010 is a feature film produced by Ramin Goudarzinejad and Mahshad Torkan Iran Human right activists and filmmakers based in London. The premiere screening of the film was in 20 May 2010. This film is focused on the plight of homosexuals, in this case, lesbians in Iran. What makes the Cul-de-sac different is that for the first time an Iranian lesbian decides to appear bravely in front of the camera to declare her right to live freely regardless of her sexual orientation.
Kiana Firouz, an Iranian lesbian who had left Iran to avoid of getting arrested meets Sayeh, a journalist and Human Right activist, whose expertise is focused on the Iranian human right issues in the UK. Kiana begins to study here and Sayeh tries to collect some information about the controversial subject of Iranian homosexuals' lives through Kiana who was formerly trying to make an underground documentary with her friends about miseries that lesbians are suffering in Iran. Although she could not get this film completed but also her information so far has remained unpublished. The heart warming tale of trust builds up between Kiana and Sayeh centered around the recent uprisings in Iran along with a series of incidents which has made Kiana to collaborate with the apposition that resulted in Kiana to claim asylum in the United Kingdom.
Guardian refers to the Cul-de-Sac 2010 as a "remarkable movie".
