Aban, a woman in her mid-forties, employs seasonal workers at the orange harvest in Northern Iran. When she wins a tender for the largest plantation in the region, she needs nerves of steel to keep the column of pickers happy. And then there are her competitors, who don’t treat a woman to anything in this job. Well played, with sparse dialogues and strong visual language.
Afterwards conversation with the filmmaker!
