Kino x 3: Migrant/Lives

Part of our series of free screenings, Kino X 3: Migrant/Lives explores the experiences of women, queer, and trans immigrants in Germany.

Parvis, the queer son of exiled Iranians, copes with life in his dull suburban hometown in central Germany by indulging himself with pop culture, Grindr dates, and raves. After being caught shoplifting, he is sentenced to community service at a refugee shelter where he meets siblings Banafshe and Amon, who have fled Iran. As a romantic attraction between Parvis and Amon grows, the fragile relationship between the three is put to a test. They find and lose each other throughout a summer of fleeting youth, an intense first love, and the stark realization that, in Germany, they are not necessarily equal.
