Synopsis

Our September Forum Film Club screening is the Persian film, Hit the Road, and it will be followed by a free post-film discussion open to all (no signing up required)!


Dad (Hassan Madjooni) sits moodily in the back with an ostensibly broken leg, while Mom (Pantea Panahiha) drives and tries to laugh when she’s not holding back tears. An energetic youngster (Rayan Sarlak, in a star-making performance) keeps exploding into song and scrambling around the car. All are fussing over their sick dog and getting on each others’ nerves; only the mysterious older brother (Amin Simiar) is quiet. It’s clear they’re on a road trip across a rugged, often extremely beautiful landscape – but where are they headed?
