Focus on Iran

Using visual humour and a prominent soundtrack, that combines Bach with nostalgic Iranian pop songs, the film paints a sensitive portrait of a family on a road trip across a rugged landscape. All members of the family have their own way of dealing with the slowly unfolding aim of the trip desperately trying to postpone the pain of an impending farewell. 

Panah Panahi (1984, Iran) studied cinema at the Tehran University of Art. Instead of immediately pursuing a filmmaking career, Panahi rolled into being a set photographer, working professionally on several films, then moving into the roles of assistant cinematographer and assistant director. Eventually, Panahi acted as a consultant, editor and assistant director on Jafar Panahi’s most recent films. Hit the Road (2021) is Panah Panahi’s feature-length directorial debut.
