Kilos of Dates for Funeral | Australian Premiere

Synopsis

From one of Iran’s most talented young filmmakers comes this darkly comic drama about two lost souls who run a struggling gas station in a deserted area of Iran. With few customers and little in common, they spend most of their time alone except for occasional visits by the postman. When together, the three men share their dreams.

Screening with Duet.
