Love Child

1h 51m Documentary 2019

Directed by Eva Mulvad (A Cherry Tale, A Modern Man) Love Child received its World Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year and has since gone on to play several major festivals around the world including IDFA, CPH: DOX, Doc NYC and the Chicago International Film Festival where it won the Gold Hugo Award for Best Documentary. It recently played the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in the UK. Love Child offers a heart-breaking portrait of Leila and Sahand, an Iranian couple who are forced to flee for their lives from Tehran where their secret affair and illegitimate child are both considered crimes, punishable by death. Together with their four-year old son Mani they take refuge in Turkey with dreams of a new life, seeking asylum to either Canada or the US. Intimately filmed over a five-year period, so intimately you often forget this is a documentary, we follow their brave quest to be safe together as a family.
