One of the first films of the Iranian New Wave, ‘The Apple’ is the extraordinary debut of Samira Makhmalbaf, made when she was just seventeen. Based on a bizarre but engaging true story, the film tells the story of twin twelve year-old sisters kept virtual prisoners all their lives by their parents, who fear that exposure to the sun will cause them to fade. Told with unaffected charm and natural humour, ‘The Apple’ won the London Film Festival’s Sutherland Trophy for best first feature and its young director went on to become one of Iran’s most acclaimed filmmakers.
