Rizoo [short film]

  Azadeh Navai

  Iran, United States     16 minutes


This endlessly charming film follows a rebellious 8-year-old who recently moved back to Tehran from the United States as she navigates familial and societal expectations. Confused by the choice to wear a traditional head-scarf in her class portrait, Rizoo seeks the perspectives of others in this transitional moment.

This film screens as part of the Shorts 6: Comedy – Awkward Laughs program.
