Fobs Of New York

Festival Year:
Director: Ali Akhavan
Producer: Maedeh Soleimanifar, Borna Nemati
Screenwriter: Ali Akhavan, Aleks Nikodin, Saba Yazdani

Three lonely people meet in Central Park by chance. A comedy about loneliness in the immigrant’s experience, Fobs of New York explores characters that go to any length in order to improve their life, except it doesn’t quite work the way they expect. Like the TV show “The Office”, Fobs of New York is shot in a documentary style to make the exaggerrated characters more believable.
