Honorable Mention, Drama

EXAM

Sonia K. Hadad

A teenage girl involves in the process of delivering a pack of cocaine to its client, and she got stuck in a weird cycle of occurrences.

Things go from bad to worse for a young Iranian student on the morning of her big exam. I won’t spoil anything for you, but this film will have you on the edge of your seat, your heart beating like OMAIGA GET OUTTA THERE. An already suspenseful storyline is made more impactful by thoughtful cinematography and incredible performances by all actors. Hadad is definitely a director to watch. — Kath T. (Programmer)
