Great storytelling with impressive dialogue

We are excited to premiere Farhad Delaram's film ACHILLES as the first of our 2024 festival programme! The film takes us from Tehran to the dried-up Lake Urmia in Iran’s northwestern province of Shabestar. It is not about the mythological figure Achilles, but rather tells the story of Farid, a former filmmaker turned orthotist in Iran, who becomes embroiled in a journey to save a political prisoner named Hedieh from a psychiatric ward, and together they embark on a perilous escape to the Turkish border, exploring themes of oppression, resistance, and the human spirit.

Farhad Delaram is an award-winning writer and director who was born in Iran. His short, TATTOO won the Crystal Bear award at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) has screened in over 90 film festivals across the globe picking up numerous awards along the way and is part of the Criterion Collection.
