We are delighted to present an evening of short films by Nader Farahwaschy on 24 September, all of which were shot in Iran. Followed by a Q&A with the director.

Donkeys
Iran / Germany 2021, 14', OmEU
A film about two estranged brothers, both facing substantial troubles in their respective lives: the pickup driver Sina being in the middle of a divorce, his younger brother about to ruin the family buisiness. As Sina is about to embark on a trip through the deserted landscape of eastern Iran to drop off a cargo, his borther Behrouz unexpectedly joins him, making him believe their mother is in hospital. But can the fate of the refugee, who suddenly emerges from the box and longs to cross the Iranian-Afghan border, be irrelevant or unconnected to them?
