Shayda produced by Gabrielle Dubois


"As a producer and Founding General Partner of The 51 Fund, I am very proud to have been involved in the production of Shayda, a film directed by Noora Niasari.


An Iranian woman living in Australia, Shayda finds refuge in a women’s shelter with her frightened 6-year-old daughter, Mona. Having fled her husband, Hossein, and filed for divorce, Shayda struggles to maintain normalcy for Mona. Buoyed by the approach of Nowruz (Persian New Year), she tries to forge a fresh start with new and unfettered freedoms. But when a judge grants Hossein visitation rights, he reenters their life, stoking Shayda’s fear that he’ll attempt to take Mona back to Iran.”


Gabrielle Dubois, writer.
