The complexities of family and identity are explored in this thoughtful, 2011 Iranian film.
A young woman named Adineh is waiting patiently for her passport so that she can travel to Germany for gender reassignment surgery and emerge as a man named Eddie --- despite her disapproving father, who is anxious to marry her to a male cousin. Desperate to stay out of Dad’s clutches, she flees into a taxi whose female driver agrees to take Eddie to her hideout at triple the regular fee, but tragedy strikes.
Iranian actress Shayesteh Irani plays Eddie with a magnetism that has been impressing audiences around the world. Winner of the Frameline Jury award for Outstanding First Feature.
Passes will be available online at www.ReelQ.org starting Sept 24. Individual tickets are available at the door only.
