ABOUT THE FILM

In this enthralling feature debut from director Panah Panahi, a family clumsily makes their way across the rugged landscapes of Northern Iran, heading to a mysterious destination. 

Half ordinary road-trip (complete with car karaoke, sick dogs, and one very loose-limbed kid) and half- surreal mystery (complete with fog shrouded mountains and strange encounters), HIT THE ROAD is a bold and frequently hilarious exploration of home, family, and the modern experience of displacement.

HIT THE ROAD premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. It went on to critical acclaim and a flourishing festival run, including screenings in Singapore, Vancouver, Athens, Tokyo, and the London Film Festival, where it won Best Film.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Panah Panahi was born in Tehran in 1984 and studied cinema at the Tehran University of Art.

While attending university, he directed his first short, which went on to participate in and win awards at many domestic and international film festivals. At that time, Panahi also served as a member of the jury at Osian’s Cinefan Festival of Asian and Arab Cinema.

Later, Panahi became a set photographer, working professionally on several films, then moving onto assistant cinematographer and assistant director roles. Eventually Panahi acted as a consultant, editor, and assistant director on Jafar Panahi’s most recent films.

Hit the Road is Panah Panahi’s first feature length movie.
