Creating a “pluralistic, post-migrant” cinema—eschewing “a multitude of media (mis)representations that stigmatize narratives of migration as a problem and the migrant body as victim or perpetrator”—writer / director Faraz Shariat captured this year’s Berlinale with a Best Feature Teddy for his feature debut NO HARD FEELINGS.
The story of Parvis (Benny Radjaipour)—the German-born son of Persian immigrants—and Amon (Eidin Jalali)—a recently arrived refugee from Iran—this beautiful, irreverent film (co-written by Paulina Lorenz) is streaming now at 2020 Outfest Los Angeles. See link below for details.
