Directed by Narges Abyar (2017, 112 min.). Digital.
Little Bahar lives a life spun from folklore and stories, always with her head in a book. But growing up in Yazd in the 1970s and 80s, she’s at the center of a country in turmoil: the Shah is overthrown, Ayatollah Khomeini rises to power, and the first shots are fired in a bitter and protracted war with Iraq. Over the span of several years, Bahar finds daydreaming in her own fantasy world is the only way she can make sense of the pain and suffering warring humans inflict on one another. Breath was selected as the Iranian entry for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Academy Awards.
