Director: Ali Ahmadzadeh, 2013, Iran, 80 mins, UK Premiere, Cine Lumiere
The two young women drive off to Lavassan, a small district on the outskirts of Tehran, where the party is taking place. But Negin doesn’t realise that a surprise awaits her in the trunk of the car.
Portraying the life and relationships of the wealthy young adults of Iran, Kami’s Party is a road-movie that takes viewers into the well-kept, secret worlds of the country’s upper-classes. An important new film showing a side to the country not many in the West will have seen, and an important debut feature from a bright new voice.
