Hit the Road
HIT THE ROAD a chaotic, tender Iranian family road trip across a rugged landscape, with two sons – one adult, the other an excitable six-year-old – and a sick dog. They variously bond over memories and get on each other’s nerves, but we gradually understand the serious underlying motive for their trip.
This comedy-drama is the feature debut of Panah Panahi, son of celebrated Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi. Earning a five star review in The Guardian by Mark Kermode, the film “swerves between tragedy and gallows humour with the expert control of a stunt driver” according to IndieWire.
FREE MAKES IT INCLUSIVE, DONATIONS MAKE IT HAPPEN

Any spare change collected at each of our screenings would be greatly appreciated and donated* to help this wonderful charity continue the admirable work.
