Synopsis Program Note
Arezoo, is an Iranian girl in transition from her teenage years to adulthood. She loves cycling and is trying to do the sport professionally. However, many difficulties such as familial restrictions, cultural ties and lack of security in the society ban Arezoo from achieving her goals, who is counting down the moments to the tournament’s beginning.
Racing down the road on her bicycle at night, Arezoo feels thrilled and liberated at the same time. Her yearning for such a simple act and the oppression of the society that hinders it are skillfully conveyed in this film. [HWANG Miyojo]
