Before Snowfall (Før snøen faller)

A boy's quest for his runaway sister becomes a dangerous journey into the unknown.

Shot in four different countries, this ambitious debut from director Hisham Zaman is a memorable achievement. Unfolding a coming of age drama, this beautifully crafted "road movie" explores the oppressive power and weight of cultural tradition. In a brilliant performance, lead actor Abdullah Taher crosses borders illegally, searching the treacherous streets of one unfamiliar city after another, as his character draws ever-nearer to finding both his sister, and himself.
