Director: Mohammad-Ali Talebi

60 minutes, Iran, 1993, English Subtitles

Known for his stunning and affecting film work with children, Iranian director Mohammad-Ali Talebi achieves a warmth and marvellous simplicity of style in this tale of a little girl, Sameneh, who persuades her mother to buy her a new pair of red rubber wellies. Later, she gets upset when she notices one missing and she goes out to try and find it, helped by a young boy.

Subtitles will be read by an experienced reader. Age recommended 8+
