AIFF 2015: Audience Likes Iranian Film The Descendants

A film festival volunteer  told us before the film, that the filmmaker really wanted to audience to send feedback.  The film is about an Iranian student who's moved to Sweden to study.  His mother gets upset because after two months they have heard nothing from their son.  Finally the dad goes to Sweden to find their son.  He discovers a world where foreign students of low means are living a different life from the one they write home about.

The volunteer herself is Iranian who went to Sweden as a student before coming to the US, so she found the film very poignant.

In response to the filmmaker's request, I offered my camera to audience members after the film and you can hear their comments below.

Thank you for sending this film to our festival!

The Descendants plays again Wednesday night, December 9 at 8 pm at the AK Exper Large theater.
