Movie poster image for FREMONT


Featured in both the 2023 SXSW Film Festival and the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, FREMONT debuted to a rave 95% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Directed by BAFTA nominee Babak Jalali (FRONTEIR BLUES), and shot in stunning black and white, FREMONT stars Anita Wali Zada in her film debut as Donya, an Afghan translator who used to work for the U.S. government – but now has trouble sleeping. When an unexpected promotion at work thrusts Donya into the position to write her own story, she communicates her loneliness and longing through a concise medium: the fortunes inside each cookie. A brilliantly crafted character portrait, “Babak Jalali's assured black-and-white indie drama strikes a beautiful tone with a deadpan sense of humor, aided by Anaita Wali Zada's quietly poignant performance.” (Variety).
