Red Carpet (Farshe Ghermez) - 2013

Struggling to make it in Iran, actor and director Reza Attaran travels to Cannes in hopes of making it big.

He soon realizes how distancing and difficult being a “nobody” can be at a major festival and has to become more inventive to get himself onto the coveted red carpet.
