The Bahman Ghobadi film Turtles Can Fly will be making its way to American audiences in the form of DVD thanks to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
A hopeful, profoundly compassionate film set in director Bahman Ghobadi’s
native Kurdistan, close
to the Turkey-Iran border. Soran is a 13-year-old boy who orders other
children around as he installs
an antennae for villagers keen to hear of Saddam’s fall. Eventually, he
falls for Agrin but is disturbed
by her brother Henkov, who was left armless after he stepped on a landmine
and who can now
seemingly predict the future.
The disc does not contain any supplements but will be available on September 20th with a suggested retail price of $29.95.
