Baba Joon

Saturday, November 12th, 2016 at 9:00 PM

Chronicling the burgeoning conflict between father and son in a hardworking Iranian-Israeli family, Yuval Delshad’s fiction-feature debut is both a fascinating glimpse into a distinctive immigrant experience and a universal story of intergenerational tension. The first Persian-language film shot in Israel, Baba Joon is a wise, sensitive drama that will win your heart.
