PESAR

Director: NOUSHIN MERAJI
IRAN
2021, 85'

Forty-year-old Farid lives with his mother. He is very vulnerable and escapes loneliness, but in the meantime tries to prove himself independent and supportive of his mother. However, her sudden death makes Farid frustrated. To escape from this unfamiliar situation, he clings to anyone he encounters outside home to make this loneliness bearable, but he does not know how to communicate and the situation gets worse each time.

Noushin Meraji born in 1980 in Tonekabon, Iran. He took a filmmaking course at Iranian Youth Cinema Association. She started making short films in 2004, some shown and awarded in national and international film festivals. «The Son» is her first feature film.
