Event Originally produced by Grasshopper Film in 2017.
Summary 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 - friendships, music, social status, academic performance - resemble that of nearly any teenager. When Ava's mistrustful and overprotective mother questions her relationship with a boy - going so far as to visit a gynecologist - 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. Winner of Best Canadian First Feature Film and a FIPRESCI Prize at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. "*Critic's Pick! "Exquisitely photographed... visually inventive... [a] remarkably controlled intensity... Ava looks repression in the eye and doesn't flinch.*" - Jeannette Catsoulis, ***The New York Times***
