Based on her own adolescent experiences, Sadaf Foroughi’s Ava is a gripping debut about a young girl’s coming-of-age in a strict, traditional society. Living with her well-to-do parents in Tehran, Ava is a bright and focused teen whose concerns resemble that of nearly any teenager:friendships, music, social status, and school. When Ava’s mistrustful and overprotective mother questions her relationship with a boy and takes extreme measures, Ava is overwhelmed by a newfound rage. Formerly a model student, Ava begins to rebel against the strictures imposed by her parents, her school, and the society at large. In Persian with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
