You’ll believe a refugee can fly

Superhero blockbuster meets arthouse drama in this tale of Aryan who winds up with inexplicable abilities after having escaped to Hungary from his war-torn homeland of Syria. On the run from the authorities, he is sought out by people who want to use him as a religious symbol and exploit his powers for monetary gain. Using the building blocks of the superhero genre to tell a relevant and politically charged story about the European migrant crisis, JUPITER’S MOON is a poignant, exciting and visually stunning film.
