The fringes of Iranian society can be a lonely place, especially if you are a teenage girl with few resources to fall back on. Finding Home follows four girls striving to pull themselves out of the margins by attending a one-of-kind rehabilitation center in uptown Tehran. Forget about the Iran that you've seen before. With a virtually invisible camera, the girls of Finding Home take us on a never-before-seen tour of the underclass of Iran with their brave and defiant stories: Samira struggles to overcome forced drug addiction; Mitra harnesses abandonment into her creative writing; Sussan teeters on a dangerous ledge after years of sexual abuse; and Nazila burgeons out of her hatred with her blazing rap music. This groundbreaking documentary reflects a side of Iran few have access to or paid attention to: a society lost to its traditions with nothing meaningful to replace them and a group of courageous women working to instill a sense of empowerment and hope into the minds and lives of...Written by
What an incredible effort! Your film stands alone and peerless in the pantheon of great 21st Century Iranian documentaries. Well done, my friend! Be assured of having produced a work of Art that will stand the test of time. And at what an opportune moment in modern Iranian History! I couldn't help but be moved beyond tears by the visual beauty of your piece and its intimacy with the characters. Again well done and a big thumbs up for your great lighting and camera work. Quite exceptional and masterful use of shadow ( eg when the mother of Nazali doesn't want to be filmed). And a final word about the sound design: brilliant crafted and great Iranian rap keeping it MG real homie!
