  • Nordisk Premiär

Azim tvingas väga sitt eget liv mot sin mors, i brännande aktuellt drama om afghanska flyktingars utsatta situation i Iran. Afghanistans Oscarbidrag.

Azim och hans familj är afghanska flyktingar i Iran sedan 15 år. Nu ska hans bror på illegal väg fortsätta till Tyskland, men till Azims vrede sviker brodern sitt löfte att ta med den åldrande modern, och lämnar henne i Teheran. När modern dessutom diagnostiseras med diabetes och akut behöver en njurtransplantation har Azim – utan medborgerliga rättigheter i Iran, och med en näst intill fientlig byråkrati emot sig – ett lika desperat som till synes olösligt dilemma i sina händer. Rona, Azim’s Mother är ett drabbande exildrama om den omöjliga situation som i vår tid delas av många afghaner spridda över världen.

Jamshid Mahmoudi

Regissör: Jamshid Mahmoudi

Jamshid Mahmoudi was born in 1983 in Afghanistan. He was hardly one-year-old when his family sought refuge in Pakistan, and then in lran. After high school graduation, he passed the entrance exam for Tehran's University of Art but preferred to work with his older brother, Navid who is a producer. He was an assistant director in many TV films and features before directing his first TV film in 2008 and 3 others after that.

When I was a child, I fled to Iran with my family and until now in my thirties I’m still living in Iran as an afghan Refugee! So, I can understand with all my heart the millions of Afghan refugees’ feelings as a result of unfair laws and rules. For instance, it’s not legal for an Iranian to donate an organ of theirs to an Afghan. Once more in my second film, as a director and scriptwriter I have tried to be the voice of my compatriots, hoping that the power of cinema could raise people’s awareness and change the laws.
