A hotly debated comedy from Iran, Snowman (Adam Barfi) tells the story of young Abbas (Akbar Abdi), a man desperate to immigrate to America. He's so anxious that he dresses as a woman in hopes of marrying an American man so he can become a full citizen. But how long can he go before being discovered? Davoud Mirbagheri's ticklish tale of cross-dressing taps into a common motif in Iranian culture--a character in a difficult situation must pass as a member of the opposite sex in order to get out of trouble. Despite the familiar theme, this bubbly comedy was quite controversial when released in Iran. In Farsi with English subtitles.
