Competition - Fiction

Hit the Road

By Panah Panahi

A wildly endearing family drives through the mountains of northern Iran on a journey filled with pop songs, bickering and laughter. The tension becomes palpable as the miles go by: this journey has a particular goal. A true Cannes sensation, Panah Panahi's debut film shifts between suspense, humour, love and poetry through sumptuous natural settings. He demonstrates extraordinary mastery of dramatic tension. A filmmaker is born.
