A black and white image of an outside yard space. There is an armchair, a broken car and a tree, Donya stands between the three, looking down.
Fremont, dir. Babak Jalali, USA 2023, 88 min., English, Dari and Cantonese with English subtitles, 12A

Donya, a young Afghan who moved to Fremont, California after serving as a translator for the American army, spends her days working at a fortune cookie factory and her nights wide awake battling between her desire to rebuild her life and the overbearing guilt she carries within. In a bid to connect with the world, she sends an unconventional message through a fortune cookie.

Tinged with Jarmuschian deadpan humour, this sensitive immigrant tale packs a breakout performance by real-life refugee Anaita Wali Zada, joined by a perpetually off-kilter Gregg Turkington and Jeremy Allen White from The Bear as a heartthrob mechanic.

Babak Jalali joined for a special preview screening of Fremont + Q&A Thursday 14 September 2023.
