A quest to return a lost Oscar®-statuette propels this heart-warming comedy; a charming tribute to the power of cinema.

Drama 2022 85 mins

Director: Hassan Nazer



Children in a small provincial Iranian town scour the local dump, looking for valuable materials they can sell to support their families. One day, film-obsessed nine-year-old Yahya and his best friend Leyla find a precious, familiar-looking golden statue in the sand. Sharing his passion for cinema, Yahya’s boss Naser Khan (Reza Naji) decides to help them locate the owner. A delightful, heart-warming gem, this ode to Iranian cinema picked up the Audience Award at the 2022 Edinburgh International Film Festival and two British Independent Film Awards.
