Directed by Hassan Nazer (UK, 2022, 85 min.). Farsi with English subtitles.

While gathering trash in the desert near their small Iranian village, a nine-year-old cinephile and his friend uncover a certain statuette of a golden man. Though the children are unfamiliar with the Academy Awards, they sense the statue’s importance and set out to solve the mystery of its origin and significance. Luckily, a local man knows a great deal about the movies due to a secret past. As he helps the children to reunite the award with its distinguished owner, he gives them—and the audience—a crash course in Iranian cinema history.

“An ode to cinema and the joy it brings.” —Deadline
