About the Film:

Persian Screen Film Festival Presented by:

Directed by Seyyed Reza Mir-Karimi. Iran. 2012. 116 mins. Persian with English subtitles.

Iran’s submission for 2013 best foreign language Oscar is a lovingly crafted portrait of everyday life and tradition in modern Iran. As an extended family prepares for the wedding of Pasandideh (Negar Javaherian), several parallel stories emerge. In the mix are a flurry of arriving relatives—grandparents, uncles, aunts, sisters, brothers-in-law, nephews, cousins—and an endless parade of food, as the celebratory feast is prepared. Before the celebration can get underway, a simple cube of sugar turns preparations for nuptials into quite another kind of gathering. Award-winning director Seyyed Reza Mir-Karimi (Under the Moonlight; So Close, So Far) brilliantly captures the intense emotions that pass through any family at pivotal moments of life and death, with warmth, emotion and hope.
