The Song of Sparrows
Reza Naji, Maryam Akbari, Kamran Dehghan, Hamed Aghazi
A delightful comedy from Iranian legend Majid Majidi.
Reza Naji took home the Best Actor Silver Bear from this year’s Berlinale for his stellar performance in this witty morality tale, about an ostrich farm worker who loses everything thanks to one errant feathered charge. Out of a job, and forced to change his life, Karim begins traveling back and forth to the city, collecting passengers and secondhand junk. Along the way, he confronts the alienation of city life – and his own selfcentred ways.
