I Am Nasrine (2012) Trailer
Trailer for I Am Nasrine.
Nasrine and Ali are sister and brother in a comfortable middle class Iranian home, but when Nasrine has a run-in with the authorities, the punishment is more than she bargained for. At her father's bidding, she and her brother set out for the United Kingdom, torn about leaving behind their home and all that they know, embarking on a reluctant exile. Still, for Nasrine, there is undeniable excitement about the prospect of starting a new life in the West, and an eagerness for its promise of new freedoms. Nasrine is quick to settle into her new life, making friends and forming bonds with the travelers, an English gypsy community. Her brother Ali, however, struggles with the realities of life in the UK and his awakening sexuality. Then comes 9/11, and things spiral out of control when an unimaginable tragedy occurs. I Am Nasrine is an intimate journey of self-discovery and ultimately reveals the unfolding of a soul. When you change where you are do you really change who you are?
