Navroz Celebrations: Pebbles to Penguins – A Story of Renewal (English)

An original film production. Zoya, a healthcare professional in her early 30s, finds herself struggling with feelings of boredom and anxiety during the pandemic. Covering her life from Navroz 2020 to Navroz 2021, the film uses music and poetry to explore her physical and mental health, touching on the initial isolation, fear, and anxiety, and moving on to coping skills, hope, and connection through family and community. Over the span of a few months, comical conversations with her family and “slice of life” scenes reveal different aspects of her life.
