Directed by Eva Mulvad (A Cherry Tale, A Modern Man) Love Child  received its World Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year and  has since gone on to play several major festivals around the world  including IDFA, CPH: DOX, Doc NYC and the Chicago International Film  Festival where it won the Gold Hugo Award for Best Documentary. It  recently played the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in the UK.  Love  Child offers a heart-breaking portrait of Leila and Sahand, an Iranian  couple who are forced to flee for their lives from Tehran where their  secret affair and illegitimate child are both considered crimes,  punishable by death. Together with their four-year old son Mani they  take refuge in Turkey with dreams of a new life, seeking asylum to  either Canada or the US. Intimately filmed over a five-year period, so  intimately you often forget this is a documentary, we follow their brave  quest to be safe together as a family.
