Director: Kaveh Tehrani



Mahmoud is a goofy, awkward, yet ultimately loveable 15-year-old Pakistani immigrant living in Norway. He has a wickedly offbeat sense of humor, a traditional Muslim family, and a younger brother Ali who wants to start living as a girl named Alia. While the film confronts integration, gender identity, class, and family dynamics, it does so in a funny, charming and endearing way. You can’t help but laugh along and enjoy the ride. Opening shorts: Scrapped Fabric & Red Panda Temptation.
