Anna Snowball x Netflix
Anna Snowball has won one of 5 coveted Netflix Documentary Talent Fundfunding fees for her next documentary, Iranian Yellow Pages. The film she is making with Abolfazl Talooni explores Iranians in London, trapped between two cultures and searching for connections by placing weird and wonderful adverts in the Iranian Yellow Pages, intriguing free ads hidden inside Farsi-language publications.
Uncovering the people and stories behind these adverts, the film discovers partying OAPs, former spies haunted by guilt, puppeteers looking for love, and refugee food delivery drivers dreaming of launching their dream restaurant. All are united by trying to find connections in the vast city they live in, while reconnecting to the complicated home they’ve left behind.
The final film will be released next year.
