Mahida's Extra Key to Heaven
by RUSSELL DAVIS
Directed by GUS KAIKKONEN
STEVEN MICHAEL WALTERS
A young American painter encounters a wary Iranian college student waiting for a ferry that will not come until the next day. He respectfully offers her shelter for the night at his mother’s house nearby. This simple offer triggers a chain of events and a confrontation which threatens to engulf them all. Gracefully plumbing this collision of cultures, Mahida’s Extra Key to Heaven speaks in a language painfully current and eloquent, unique and haunting.
