About the film:
Germany | German/Persian w/ English subtitles | 2020 | 92 min.
Parvis, the son of exiled Iranians, copes with life in his small hometown with pop culture, Grindr dates & raves. After being caught shoplifting, he is sentenced to community service at a refugee shelter where he meets siblings Banafshe & Amon, who fled Iran. As a romantic attraction between Parvis & Amon grows, the fragile relationship between the three is put to a test. They find & lose each other during a summer of fleeting youth, an intense first love, an attempt at a joint future, as well as the stark realization that, in Germany, they are not equal.
This film series is part of Queer as German Folk, a project celebrating the intersectional histories of Germany’s and America’s diverse LGBTIQ+ communities.
