Paper Airplanes (Mooshak-haaye Kaaghazi)

 Paper airplane1

A public official at the Department of Culture and his son travel to distant villages to show films. They arrive at a beautiful valley where they meet beautiful, kind and curious people, and are helped in putting up their touring cinema while the local children entertain them with myths and fairytales. None of the villagers have ever seen a film, and their amazement and enchantment is great to the degree that not even the pouring rain can prevent the tonight's show. But the father and his son also learn something new on this journey, as they are captured by the natural beauty in the traditional life. "Paper Airplanes" is a charming film about the simple joys of life, about innocence and friendship.
