Abstract—The present treatise aims at analyzing 1 the scene pictured by Iran’s post-revolution cinema for its audience. How the gender inequalities would arise as actors and actresses interact in post-revolution cinema is the body of the main question. The theoretical frame of this research is greatly indebted to Goffman’s theoretical approach to the gender display in visual media. The research findings depict the ritualized gender displays in post-revolution cinema and reproduction of traditional gender patterns and norms in Iranian cinema. Ritualizing the subordination, the films produced there after confirm and demonstrate the traditional gender values and norms.
