Hit the Road

Panah Panahi • 2021 • 93 mins • Iran • M
Driving across the wide Iranian countryside, a family navigates a road trip full of conflicting emotions. Dad has a broken leg and a mood to match, while Mum fusses over her two children and the dog. As the destination draws closer, the claustrophobia in the car grows alongside the love they have for each other.

Full membership provides access to all our regular screenings. With over 30 films being shown every year, we bring our members into an extraordinary world of cinema for less than $5 per film.
