Iran’s Arrow is a documentary about a British car (the Hillman Hunter) that was introduced to Iran in 1967. It became Iran’s national car and was produced under the model name “Paykan” (meaning ‘Arrow’) for 38 years. Naturally, being home-produced it attracted no import duties and quickly became the default family car across the nation. However, would this festival really show a film about a car? Of course not, this is a film about post-war Iran and it’s a brilliant and beautiful story. A real gem in this year’s line-up.
