"I Am Nasrine follows the paths of Nasrine and Ali, sister and brother in a comfortable, middle-class Iranian home. When Nasrine has a run-in with the police, the punishment is more than she bargained for: their father orders them both to relocate to the UK.
Arriving in Britain, their fate and their future are far from certain. As Nasrine finds the courage to accept her fate, she discovers that the end of her journey is really just the beginning" – iamnasrine.com *
"I finally watched I Am Nasrine. It made me cry. It is a film that captures the beauty of human interactions – tentative and curious – and is full of ideas about how to frame and tell a story […] It is profoundly relevant and puts to shame many portrayals of Iranian people." – Mark Cousins, Film Historian & Critic
"We are all much more thoughtful and potentially better people for the insights this film gives – it is for each of us to learn from or ignore the messages, so powerful if we can experience the former." –
