The film ‘Lovechild’, a poignant portrait of a family of asylum seekers, is currently available to rent as part of Rich Mix’s online cinema.
Filmed over six years in Turkey, this is an emotional account of an Iranian family in exile desperately seeking asylum.
They escaped death, but where do they have a future?
Love Child offers a heartbreaking portrait of Leila and Sahand, an Iranian couple who are forced to flee for their lives from Tehran where their secret affair and illegitimate child are both considered crimes, punishable by death.
Together with their four-year-old son Mani they take refuge in Turkey with dreams of a new life, seeking asylum to either Canada or the US. Intimately filmed over a five-year period, we follow their brave quest to be safe together as a family.
To rent Love Child for 48 hours, all you have to do is click ‘Watch at Home’ on the website page. A percentage of your rental fee will go towards supporting Rich Mix while their doors are closed.
