The Abadanis


Directed by Kianoush Ayari
Iran, 1994


A powerful examination of life during Iran’s horrific war with Iraq. Shot in black and white, this film clearly derives inspiration from Vittorio de Sica’s Bicycle Thieves and examines the war through the eyes of Bora, a young boy who fled to Tehran with his family.
