Storyline

When you change where you are do you change who you are? I Am Nasrine is an intimate journey of self-discovery and ultimately reveals the unfolding of a soul. Set in modern day Tehran, and the UK, the film follows the paths of Nasrine and Ali, sister and brother in a comfortable, middle class Iranian home. When Nasrine has a run-in with the police, the punishment is more than she bargained for. At her father's bidding, Nasrine and Ali set out for the UK, torn about leaving behind their home and all that they know, embarking on a reluctant exile. Still, for Nasrine, there is undeniable excitement about the prospect of starting a new life in the West, and an eagerness for its promise of new freedoms. Arriving in Britain, their fate and their future are far from certain. Nasrine is quick to settle into her new life, making friends, forming bonds, including Nichole from the gypsy/travelers community. All the while her brother Ali struggles with the realities of life in the UK and his ... Written by Production Office

Review of Film by Freedom From Torture Chief Exec
23 October 2011 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

I am greatly impressed by a film which conveys such a strong message on so many levels: it portrays the problems faced by Iranians fleeing from the injustices and denial of human rights that they experience in their own country and the added difficulties they face when trying to make their way in the UK especially against a background of enforced illegal working and hostility; it demonstrates how much more we as a society could do to try to understand why asylum seekers come to the UK, from what they are fleeing, to understand that they are human beings just like us with the same aspirations and wants; it manifests the differences in cultural norms between societies and examines sensitively this in particular through Nasrine's and her brother's awakening sexuality and, in the case of the former, how easily that can be blighted by previous rape and brutality; it gives a wonderful insight into part of the culture and everyday experience of many people in the North East â€" their warmth and welcome but also their prejudice and parochialism; above all it shows the dangers of just growing up as teenagers in an unfamiliar culture far from home and the comfort zone of one's own familiar norms and family. We are all much more thoughtful and potentially better people for the insights this film gives â€" it is for each of us to learn from or ignore the messages, so powerful if we can experience the former.
