When Pomegranates Howl

M Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for When Pomegranates Howl at Dendy Canberra


Granaz Moussavi's (My Tehran For Sale) outstanding new film is in the tradition of the great child-centred works of the 1980s when Kiarostami and Amir Naderi (to whom this film is dedicated) were putting Iran on the map. Hewad is an irrepressible kid hustling everything from pomegranate juice to protection from the evil eye. His real ambition is to be a movie star, and this comes a step closer when he meets an Australian photographer. But in a city where it is easy to be "martyred," the streets are as perilous as they are vivid.

Pashto and Farsi Language with English Subtitles.
