Until Tomorrow / Ta Farda

by Ali Asgari Feature Film Competition

Fereshteh studies and works in Tehran. But what her parents don't know is that she also has a two-month-old daughter out of wedlock. When they announce a spontaneous visit, she has to take the child somewhere else for a night. This would not normally be a problem – but with the pressure of time, the plan proves to be a difficult undertaking. With the help of her quick-witted roommate Atefeh, Fereshteh embarks on an odyssey through the city. Told over the course of one day, director Ali Asgari's film impressively shows what it means for people in Iran to live outside traditional family structures – and how the intrepid generation of Millennials is putting the patriarchal value system to the test.
