Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Setsuo Nakayama's Farda is an unusual fish-out-of-water story. Japanese businessman Izava (Kai Shishido) works for an auto manufacturer. Izava is saddened by the death of a man who ran a plant that Izava was ordered to close. Murata had a dying wish to see one of his workers get a large payment. Izava is asked to deliver the money. He travels to Iran. Although he continues to have trouble finding his prey, Izava befriends locals even though he is often unable to communicate verbally. Farda was screened at the Montreal World Film Festival.
