Film Summary

Mona Seraji is a professional snowboarder. Which is a distinction, of course, but what really sets her apart is that her home mountain is in Iran. One of the unique delights of this endearing short film, in addition to glimpses of a country and culture we hear so little about (and rarely anything positive), is that fretted lutes, ancient Persian percussions and haunting Farsi vocals perfectly counterweight the very modern, very cool, hip-hop segments of the musical score.
