The National Museum of Asian Art in Washington DC has been reviewing Iranian movie ‘The Son’.

The movie, directed by Noushin Meraji, is being reviewed at the US museum during the 26th edition of the Festival of Films from Iran.

The Sackler Gallery and the Freer Gallery of Art, which together form the Smithsonian Institution’s national museums of Asian art in Washington, are the organizers of the festival.

‘The Son’ is about Farid, a forty-year-old man who lives with his mother. He is very vulnerable and escapes loneliness, but in the meantime tries to prove himself independent and supportive of his mother. However, her sudden death makes Farid frustrated.

To escape from this unfamiliar situation, he clings to anyone he encounters outside home to make this loneliness bearable, but he does not know how to communicate and the situation goes from bad to worse.

The cast list of the movie includes Qanaddan, Nahid Haddadi, Donya Heidari, Mojtaba Fallahi, Maryam Naqib, and Atabak Naderi.
