02/25| Daughter/Dokhtar at 27th Annual Festival of Films from Iran


Giddy girl power meets the complications of life in a layered story in which college-age Setareh’s longing for self-determination comes up against her traditional father’s passionate but controlling love. An impulsive but forbidden trip to see a school friend off to college abroad goes awry, stranding Setareh in far-off Tehran, the object of her angry dad’s search. As always, director Mirkarimi (SO CLOSE, SO FAR; THE CHILD AND THE SOLDIER) brings a delicate spiritual dimension to a narrative that unearths long-hidden family secrets and tests the strength of forgiveness. In Persian with English subtitles. DCP digital.
