The Face of a City

Directed by Farhad Pakdel

The Face of a City is an intertwined portrait of four Iranian families who emigrate to Canada and the city they leave behind. They share their innermost thoughts on displacement and belonging. As the departure time approaches, social spaces turn into places of memory, fading into the distance.
