DFF2023 presents "Loteria," a captivating film that tells the poignant tale of an Iranian man's relentless pursuit of a better life in the United States. Directed by Ali Atshani, this 1 hour and 31-minute drama showcases the challenges immigrants faced due to the travel ban imposed on Iran in 2017. Forced to cross the border illegally from Mexico, the protagonist embarks on multiple attempts to fulfill his dreams, all while navigating the complexities of his situation. In another powerful film, "Curse Breakers," directed by Caché Petters-Matthews, we witness the strength and resilience of Mary, a young Black woman. While going about her daily routine of grocery shopping with her children, she unexpectedly encounters her childhood sexual abuser. This emotionally charged story explores the multi-generational trauma experienced by Black communities. "Curse Breakers" sheds light on a narrative that resonates in real life, echoing the experiences of many.
