Before Summer Ends

Synopsis

Thirty-something Iranian friends Arash, Hossein, and Ashkan embark on a late summer road trip through the sunny South before Arash heads back to Iran. The three camp under the stars as they guzzle beers, join up with a rock ‘n’ roll girl duo, and reflect on the cultural differences between their home and adopted countries. With a wry, improvisatory sense of humor and spare but striking compositions, director Maryam Goormaghtigh crafts an endearing and perceptive semi-documentary travelogue that speaks to both the challenges and freedoms that come with being an outsider in a foreign country. Bonus: a hilarious language lesson on the various Iranian terms for farts.
