Every day for 20 years, Sakineh has gone fishing, often with her friend Sobra, to make a living for their families.

Ali Aqa (2017)
Directed by Kamran Heidari

In his previous works Dingomaro and My Name Is Negahdar Jamali and I Make Westerns — which screened in the 2014 and 2015 UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema — documentarian Kamran Heidari established a reputation as a peerless cinematic portraitist of eccentricity. With Ali Aqa, Heidari turns his penetrating but empathetic lens on an aging pigeon fancier whose hobby has become an all-consuming obsession.

Director: Kamran Heidari

DCP, color, 82 min.

FREE admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
