From the brilliantly multi-talented Narges Abyar comes her third feature film ‘Breath’, a bittersweet family drama set against the backdrop of the Iranian revolution and the ensuing Iran-Iraq war. Adapted from one of her own novels featuring the same title, the film takes place in several rural suburban areas in the Karaj region and centres around a working class family, more specifically the young daughter Bahar. Through the wandering of the daydreaming Bahar we experience Iran in the late 70s and early 80s and the heartbreaking impact the Sacred Defense, as the war is referred to in Iran, has on her family. 'Breath' won the Best Picture Golden Simorgh and Best Supporting Actress Silver Simorgh at the 34th Fajr Film Festival.
