Berlinale 2020Teddy Award for Best Feature Film


In the presence of director Faraz Shariat and actor Benjamin Radjaipour (under reserve)

Parvis is the son of two Iranian parents. He wears skin-tight t-shirts, and has short, peroxide-blond hair. Alcohol, raves, drugs and booty calls – life is a party to him. After getting caught shoplifting, Parvis is sent to do community service in a reception centre for refugees, where he falls in love with Amon, who has fled Iran with his sister. In his powerful, semi-biographical debut peppered with pop-cultural references, Faraz Shariat unfolds a tale of intense first love. With a precise grasp of social context, he offers a sensitive insight into the experience of migrants in Germany caught between feeling foreign, being excluded and obtaining the permanent right to stay..
