Finding Farideh

Directed by: Azadeh Mousavi
& Kourosh Ataee

Feature –  90 Min.

A Dutch woman searches for her biological parents in Iran after 40 years.

Farideh was abandoned in a holy shrine in Iran when she was 6 months old. Adopted by a Dutch couple, she was taken to the Netherlands to start a new life. Despite her parent’s disapproval, almost 40 years later Farideh sets off in search of her biological parents, discovering more than she could ever have imagined. Finding Farideh is a soul-stirring story that connects West to East and captures what it means to exist between two worlds.
