The annual series is produced by the Global Film Initiative to promote cross-cultural understanding by showing American audiences little-known, skillfully made independent films. The initiative believes that “a powerful, authentic narrative can foster trust and respect between disparate cultures and mitigate the social and psychological impact of cultural prejudice.”

Made in 2007, Those Three is about three conscripts in the Iranian Army who, just one day before completing their military training, desert their camp and attempt to survive in the unforgiving wilderness of northern Iran in the midst of winter.

Those Three is Nemati’s first feature film. Born in Ardebil, Iran, in 1977, he studied film directing at Soureh College of Isfahan, Iran. He began making short films in 1993. His first film, Like the Umbrella of the Kids was screened at numerous film festivals around the world and received several awards.
