“A film of truly magnificent autership that will leave you alive and trembling.” Robyn Pete

A personal narrative documentary that follows its creator, Sohrab Kavir, battling survivor’s guilt after the deaths of three of his brothers. Upon his return to Iran, he embarks upon an epic quest to form a virtual football team made up of young sufferers of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy – the same disease that took his brothers.

After the film  Sohrab and the producer will take part in a Q&A.

Sohrab Kavir is a Iranian-British writer/director making his industry debut with “Duchenne Boys”, his first feature documentary. He studied cinematography and screenwriting with the Iranian Youth Cinema Institute before moving to the UK in 2003. He completed a BA in Digital Film Production at London Southbank University (2009) followed by an MA in Filmmaking at the London Film School (2015). Sohrab and his wife Nastaran (producer) moved to Stroud in February this year. They have recently welcomed the arrival of their first child, Ella.
