About this submission
A rebellious teenage drummer must prove to her traditional Iranian father that she can reconcile her culture with her passion for the 1980s punk scene. ROGUE is a daughter/father story centered around the Iranian-American experience, textured by the 1980s punk scene in Southern California. This film explores themes pertaining to Middle-Eastern identity and the complexity of the bicultural experience. Telling an authentic Middle Eastern story in a time where people need to be reminded of the humanity that links them is more important now than ever.
