April 10: Children of Heaven (Iran 1997)
" Nominated for an Oscar in 1999 for Best Foreign Language Film. Children of Heaven is an engaging film about a brother and sister who attempt a unique solution to their problem. Ali has lost his sister Zahara's shoes, so they share Ali's sneakers with Zahara wearing them to school in the morning and Ali in the afternoon. Ali enters a foot race to try to win the third prize - a new pair of sneakers! This charming film offers us the fascination of looking through a window at a different culture and recognizing that it's not fundamentally very different from our own. "
In Farsi with English subtitles.
Director: Majid Majidi, 94 minutes
