Inversion

7:00 PM

 Behnam Behzadi, 84 min, Social Drama, Farsi with English subtitles, Iran, 2016

Tehran's air pollution has reached maximum levels because of thermal inversion. Unmarried 30-something Niloofar lives with her old mother and keeps herself busy with her tailoring shop. When doctors insist that her mother must leave smoggy Tehran for her respiratory health, Niloofar’s brother and family elders decide that she must also move away to accompany her mother. 

Niloofar is torn between family loyalty and living her own life and pursuing a potential love interest. She is the youngest in the family and has always obeyed their orders, but this time she must stand up for herself and find a way to try and "invert" her life once again.

The film has won the Red Rose Award for the Best Released Film & Best Original Screenplay Award at Jaipur International Film Festival. It has also participated in many film festivals, including: Cannes International Film Festival (Un Certain Regard), Dubai International Film Festival, Hamburg International Film Festival, Vancouver, Kerala, Belgrade, Chennai, Gijon and Persian International Film Festival.
