NO HARD FEELINGS
#NewFest2020 Closing Night Film
Director Faraz Shariat
An exhilarating and balanced look at the challenges of young immigrants and the importance of community, this gorgeous drama captured the top prize at the 2020 Teddy Awards. Writer-director Faraz Shariat's astoundingly confident debut follows Parvis, a second-generation Iranian-German working at a refugee center, as he gets entangled in the fast-paced lives of dreamy Amon and his spirited sister Banafshe. Tired of his conservative family and empty Grindr hook-ups, he immerses himself in his newly blooming queer social life, only to discover that one of his new friends will soon be deported. With gorgeous cinematography and stunning performances across the board, NO HARD FEELINGS is both an incredibly specific critique of modern xenophobia and a timeless story of romance and friendship.
