Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label


For New Year’s, seven-year-old Razieh is determined to buy a goldfish (a traditional symbol of life in Iranian culture). The young girl manages to convince her mother into giving her money, then heads to the marketplace alone. Razieh enjoys the excitement of her first experience away from her parents. She is set back when she loses the money, but her independent spirit remains unbeatable… Experienced in real time, Razieh’s wide-eyed misadventures effectively convey the impact that the simplest of events can dramatically leave upon a child.
