AVA

TIFF 2017 - Discovery

Synopsis

Ava’s life is dictated by rules. Coming of age in Iran, she faces pressure to conform to the expectations of her parents, her school, and her friends. When Ava learns that her parents were once flagrant rule breakers themselves, she begins to rebel against the very foundations of her society. AVA masterfully demonstrates how a culture of authority can force denial and detachment, particularly among young women during their formative yet vulnerable high school years. AVA marks the feature directorial debut of Sadaf Foroughi, an Iranian-born writer and producer who now resides in Canada.
