Storyline

Sepideh wants to become an astronaut. She spends her nights exploring the secrets of the universe, while her family will do anything to keep her on the ground.

She takes up the fight and teams up with the world's first female space tourist, Anousheh Ansari. Written by Radiator Film

I remeber this film fondly
29 November 2019 | by dgvanstoneSee all my reviews

I saw this film several years ago at the Melbourne International Film festival. It was one of my favorites that year. When I recently purchased a DVD copy of Sonita I decided to also track down the DVD for Sepideh (A Korean release with English subtitles but it will do). In doing so I also came across a BBC Sounds segment interviewing her in 2018.

It is worth listening to if you're curious of what became of her.
