Badkonake Sefid (1995)

Iran 75m, Colour
Director: Jafar Panahi; Cast: Aida Mohammadkhani, Mohsen Kafili, Fereshteh Sadr Orfani

white_balloonThe White Balloon is a charming story about Razieh, a seven-year old girl who convinces her mother to give her 100 tomans to purchase a pretty goldfish for the New Year’s Day festivities. However, before she can get to the shop, a series of misadventures occur which threaten her plans. A lighthearted children’s drama that is told in real-time, Panahi vividly captures these simple events from a child’s perspective (Klaus Ming February 2016).
