Antropofest 2017 Mina who lives in a corner of a park in Tehran, pays no mind to the hustle and bustle of the New Year's celebrations. The film gives us a glimpse into fourteen days of her life as she plays with dogs, exchanges banter with other homeless people in search of drugs and cigarettes, and sleeps next to piles of garbage.

Kaveh Mazaheri  was born 1981 in Tehran, Iran. An interest in cinema led Mazaheri to begin writing film criticism for Iranian magazines after graduating from college in 2004. His first short film, Tweezers (2007), was censored in Iran. To date, he has made three independent short films and more than twenty short and long documentaries for broadcast on Iranian television. He is the editor and author of a great many projects aside from his own. Some of the films he has directed include Soori's Trip (Doumentary, 2009), Labyrinth (Docudrama Series, 2013, 15 Episodes), and Cockroach (Fiction Short, 2015). Lately A report about Mina won "Special Mention Prize" and was nominated "Ogawa Shinsuke Prize" from Yamagata Documentary Film Festival (Japan 2015).
