After five years in Paris, Arash has decided to return home to Iran, but his fellow Iranian natives Hossein and Ashkan convince him to take one last trip through the South of France. As the best friends drive, drink lots of beer, and meet a pair of female French musicians, the trio experiences the thrill of a road trip imbued with a wistful longing for home. This artfully photographed non-fiction comedy beautifully captures the expat experience. It’s definitely less about the destination than the journey, revealing three characters who are as lost in life as the rest of us can be at times. This short and sweet affair opened the Cannes Acid sidebar earlier this year.

‘The feature debut of writer-director-cinematographer Maryam Goormaghtigh is quirky and warm-hearted all at once.’ Hollywood Reporter

A BFI/Film Hub North/Hull 2017/University of Hull event, presented as part of French Film Festival UK 2017.

The BFI is funding ‘Transformative Film Culture For hull’, as part of its National Lottery-funded BFI Film Audience Network and led by its lead partner BFI Film Hub North. Delivered through Hull2017 and by Hull Independent Cinema and a unique partnership of film festival, educational and archive partners from across the north, the film programme will bring a packed programme of more than 400 screenings, one-off events and film festivals throughout the year to Hull and the region. The programme reflects the BFI’s activities across the UK to bring film to audiences where there is less opportunity for them to experience and engage in film, and to support local film networks and audience initiatives. There will be much to explore, celebrate and enjoy.
