SPOTLIGHT ON CANNES 2021: DIRECTORS' FORTNIGHT — JADDE KHAKI —Panah Panahi
"A chaotic, tender family is on a road trip across a rugged landscape, but to where? In the back seat, Dad has a broken leg, but is it really broken? Mom tries to laugh when she’s not holding back tears. The kid keeps exploding into choreographed car karaoke. All of them are fussing over the sick dog and getting on each others’ nerves."
Only the mysterious older brother is quiet.
"Panah Panahi was born in Tehran in 1984 and studied cinema at the Tehran University of Art. His first short film was shown and won awards at many domestic and international film festivals. He was a member of the jury for Osian’s Cinefan Festival of Asian and Arab Cinema."
