“A beautifully tender comedy”
Indiewire

“Goes instantaneously from zero to 60”
Variety

“Demonstrates a skill and control of the medium that’s rare for a first film”
The Hollywood Reporter

Hosted by Babak Tabarraee, Assistant Professor of Instruction (Iranian film, Persian language) in Middle Eastern Studies at the Univ. of Texas at Austin.
The debut film from Panah Panahi (son of Jafar) is, on the surface, a road movie about a family taking a trip through the ruggedly beautiful landscape of northwestern Iran, but there’s a larger message here about life and death itself.
