Visionary filmmaker Arsalan Baraheni has a new feature that will soon be shown to audiences at the Malibu International Film Festival. “Migrant Birds Fly” is a poetic exploration of language, femininity, culture, and personal identity in an increasingly globalized world. The film is in the competition for the 22nd edition of the festival, which will be held from the 20th of March through the 27th.
The film follows three female characters on separate journeys. Their paths will take them places they never expected to go, but all of the women share a sense of being lost in language and displaced in the world. Themes of exile and finding love in strange places run through “Migrant Birds Fly” and unite the stories of women from very different places in the world.
Audiences are nearly as excited for his film as they are for the Malibu Film Festival itself. If you’re looking for a unique artistic experience, we’ve got the latest details on the festival and Baraheni’s “Migrant Birds Fly” ready for you right here.
So much difference, so much similarity
The three female characters in Arsalan Baraheni’s “Migrant Birds Fly” come from different parts of the world – Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. Olga Korsak, Solmaz Alizadeh, and Dorami Hsien take the lead roles. Their characters all take different routes to unite in the same language classroom in Toronto.
Each of the women is given their own section in the film. Together the three sections, named “Migrant,” “Birds,” and “Fly,” tell a thematically unified tale about love, language, exile, and the human condition. The film’s structure is as much a part of its poetics as its script. Baraheni and all of his actors have brought their A-game to this project, and their talent shines through every moment.
