Go Home Contends at Filmfest Munchen


Director Jihane Chouaib's feature film Go Home, starring Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani, will compete at the Munich International Film Festival (23 June - 2 July) within the CineVision competition.

The film revolves around Nada, who is returning to her abandoned family home in Lebanon that was destroyed and dilapidated by the war, turning its garden into a dump. She decides to resettle in this place amidst her childhood memories, setting a mission for herself: finding the body of her grandfather who had disappeared during the Civil War. Her journey leads her to discover myths and secrets while searching for her own identity.

Go Home was supported by Enjaaz Programme. It was nominated for the Best Feature Film Award in
the Best Muhr Fiction Feature competition during Dubai International Film Festival in 2015. In the same year, the film was also nominated for the New Currents Award at Busan International Film Festival. Go Home also concluded the events of the 12th Lebanese Film Festival.

Directed by Jihane Chouaib, Go Home stars the award-winning Golshifteh Farahani, who began her career at the age of 14 and won five awards at five different film festivals. Farahani also starred alongside Leonardo Dicaprio in Body of Lies, becoming the first Iranian actress to take part in an American film since 1979.
