KIDS OF TEHRAN

27 min. 2016, IRAN (recorded in Iran)

Directed, edited, sound recorded by Daniel Asadi Faezi

In Tehran, the capital of Iran and a densely populated metropolis, there are only 50 skaters. They are not explicitly political. Skateboarding is merely their form of rebellion against a rather restrictive life. Riding their boards in the streets they can feel free. Camera follows two boys, Ali and Erfan, and one girl, Elham, on their skateboards on the streets and homes in Tehran.

TEHERANI LAPSED

Autor Daniel Asadi Faezi

Iraani pealinnas, hiiglaslikus metropolis, on vaid viiskümmned rulal kihutajat. Filmi autor jälgib kaht poissi - Alid ja Efrani, ning üht tüdrukut - Elhami, mööda linna kihutamas ja siseneb ka noorte kodudesse. Rulatamine ei ole nende jaoks poliitiline tegevus, ent see paistab väga traditsioonilises Iraanis silma kui opositsiooniline väljakutse.
