FREMONT

Next Screening

FREMONT​

Troubled 20-something Donya, an Afghan translator who used to work with the US government, has trouble sleeping. She lives by herself in Fremont in a building with other Afghan immigrants, often dining alone at a local restaurant watching soap operas.

Her routine changes when she’s promoted to writing the fortunes at her job at a fortune cookie factory in the city. As her fortunes are read by strangers throughout the Bay, Donya’s smouldering longing drives her to send a message out to the world, unsure where it will lead.

Fremont takes a thoughtful and wryly funny look at the immigrant experience.

 

Babak Jalali’s assured black-and-white indie drama strikes a beautiful tone with a deadpan sense of humour, aided by Anaita Wali Zada’s quietly poignant performance. – Variety

It’s the kind of independent film which we haven’t seen alot of lately, endowed with intimacy and a kind of dreamy charm. – The Guardian

Coming Soon

Noosa Film Society

With over 2000 members the Noosa Film Society is the largest such society in Australia.

The Noosa Film Society is a registered not-for-profit organisation and was established in 1979 to encourage interest in film as an art form. At first, movies were screened at the golf club to a small group of film enthusiasts once a month. Several years later, screenings were moved to the Noosa Arts Theatre where they continued to play until the cinema in Noosa Junction was built.
