Nomination Detail

The strict and traditional Mr Azizi works in an oil refinery, but at home his word is law. So it comes as a shock when, just as one of his daughters is planning her engagement celebration, another defies him and flies 1000 kilometres away to see her best friend. The enraged father pursues her to bring her home. Masterfully directed, Daughter is Reza Mirkarimi’s eighth feature and explores the push-pull disconnect between a traditional father who wants to protect his now grown-up daughter and the daughter’s fight for flexibility and independence. The traditional balance of power is challenged by a new generation of young women with keen aspirations.

We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of country, including the custodial communities on whose land works are created and celebrated by the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. We acknowledge the continuing connection to land, waters and communities. We also pay our respects to Elders, past and emerging. We recognise the integral role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and First Nations peoples continue to play in storytelling and celebration spaces.
