A Fleeting Encounter
Switzerland - 85 min
With Pooneh Hajimohammadi, Felipe Castro and Elisabet Johannesdottir.
Grappling with a mid-life crisis and a broken leg, a Swiss man escapes to an Airbnb only to discover he will be sharing it with an Iranian woman facing her own personal crisis. Mutually annoyed at having to share the apartment, tension builds as they both play off the other’s prejudices until a lively American arrives and disrupts their routine. As misconceptions give way to curiosity and compassion, they find they have much more in common than they could have guessed. A fascinating and humorous character study about two people trying to find their way.
In English, French and Persian, with subtitles.
