AVA is “written and directed in the form of variation in music,” according to director Sadaf Foroughi. She also said that her first feature film “portrays what women are confronting in Iranian society today with the cinematographic aesthetic of a country in which there are restrictions on portraying women.” Its titular character is a musically talented teenager who rebels when her mother takes her to an ob-gyn to confirm her virginity. The rift that develops in a once-close family reveals secrets that the parents have hidden from their only daughter. While rooted in the particulars of Iranian society, the film’s themes of family secrets and teenage rebellion are universal. (Dir.: Sadaf Foroughi, Iran/Canada/Qatar, 2017, 102 min., DCP, Persian with English subtitles)
