5th GPIFF Official Selection

Dogs-and-Fools-still

Dogs and Fools

Ali Mohammad Ghasemi

In the mountainous and forest heights in the north of Iran, in the fog, a big mistake disrupts a love story. The family falls apart, and the older generation cannot help the younger generation. The old generation is disappointed with life, confined at home, in pain, and the young generation, inexperienced and wild, seeks a new way of life. The cost of expiation is nothing but loss, destruction, and insanity.
