(Bahman Ghobadi, 2004, Iran/Iraq)
Set in Ghobadi’s native Kurdistan, close to the Turkey-Iran border. Satellite is a 13-year-old boy who orders other children around as he installs an antenna for villagers keen to hear of Saddam’s fall. He falls for an orphan named Agrin, but is disturbed by her brother Henkov, who was left armless after he stepped on a landmine and who can now seemingly predict the future.
