Bag of Rice (80 mins)
Four-year-old Jairan is ignored at home, and is itching for something to do. She convinces her neighbour, an old lady who is partially blind, that the two of them should travel across one of the world’s busiest cities, Tehran, to buy rice. What could possibly go wrong? A gentle take on Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Mohammad-Ali Talebi's disarming film starts as an odd-couple adventure, then opens out into something profound and unforgettable.
