Filmed on-location in the Provinces of Semnan and Baluchestan, Iran: ‘The Desert Fish’ is a project that in many ways is the first of its kind. Independently produced and directed by award-winning Canadian filmmaker Mohammad Ghorbankarimi, the film merges poetic-lyricism with realism into a beautiful narrative and a cinematographic feast for the eyes.
Spanning more than 2000 kilometers of never-before-filmed countryside, ‘The Desert Fish’ follows the haunting journey of a young boy in search of his mother who was lost at sea more than eight years ago. And through his search, we witness a theme common to the human condition: The enduring love of a child for his parents… and the extent to which he will make personal sacrifices for a chance at happiness.
‘The Desert Fish’ reveals a world rich in color, texture and emotion.
