Eyes and Arms

Eyes and Arms

Dir. Panahbarkhoda Rezaee - 54min - 2019 - Iran - Language: Farsi - Subtitles: English

Maryam lost her arms and a foot in a railway accident, and against her family's wishes eloped with Mohammad who is blind. Deeply in love and perfectly matched, living in rural Iran, the isolated couple overcome their disabilities, with her becoming his eyes and him her arms.

"With graceful compositions and a patient rhythm, director Panahbarkhoda Rezaee observes the small, affectionate gestures of their domestic life, his camera transforming everyday moments into a touching meditation on love. But Mohammad and Maryam’s perfect companionship, self-sufficiency and sense of humour can’t hide the melancholy that is growing between them: she wants a child and he does not. Can they keep walking the path of life together?" HotDocs http://ow.ly/ezXw50Bzt87
