Tehran: City of Love
Directed by:

The film presents the story of three individuals – a bodybuilder, a secretary and a funeral singer – who long for love, connection and intimacy, set in the city of Teheran. Director Ali Jaberansari perfectly captures the realness of everyday life, the humor in small moments and genuine emotions of disappointment and hope. The jury also awards the poetical film language, the mosaic structure, the minimalistic, suggestive acting, and also the universal, interreligious message.
