Paris – Tehran
Kevah Oveisi, 80 min,
Drama, Farsi with English subtitles, Iran, 2016
Aida, a 35-year old
Iranian girl who lives in Paris, returns back to Tehran after years.
She had arranged to receive a sperm from an Iranian young man, according to a
previous agreement, as she wants a baby. Upon her arrival to the city, the young
man ditches her and disappears. Aida, accompanied by her friend Berkeh, starts
looking for an alternative to give her what she needs.
The film gives a new
and different perspective on modern Iranian society, where women’s role and
independence are much bigger than some would think.
