ReelQ: Facing Mirrors

Presented by City of Asylum @ Alphabet City at City of Asylum @ Alphabet City

This program will be held downstairs in our intimate Word Cellar.

(Runtime: 102 minutes)

A low budget film set in contemporary Iran, Facing Mirrors is a story of an unlikely and daring friendship that develops despite social norms and religious beliefs. Although Rana is a traditional wife and mother, she is forced to drive a cab to pay off the debt that keeps her husband in prison. By chance she picks up the wealthy and rebellious Edi, who is desperately awaiting a passport to leave the country. At first Rana attempts to help, but when she realizes that Edi is transgender, a dangerous series of conflicts arises. Directed by Negar Azarbayjani, Facing Mirrors is the first narrative film from Iran to feature a transgender main character.
