It's Always Late for Freedom

Hamishe Baraye Azadi Dir Ast

Directed by Mehrdad Oskouei
Iran, 2007


In this portrait of a Tehranian youth correctional centre, Oskouei introduces us to a group of teenage boys serving sentences related to violence, theft and drugs. We follow three in particular who demonstrate unlikely blends of world-weary toughness, street-smarts and a mature compassion.
