Summary Dear Cousin is Lost was first screened at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival as the first part of a two film feature titled, Tales of Kish (the second part being Testing Democracy). Set on Kish, a duty-free island in Iran, Dear Cousin Is Lost constitutes a highly eccentric narrative about lost love and longing. The film deftly blends farce and romance, comedy and drama to tell the story of an actor (Ali) who keeps seeing the spector of his dead bride flying through the sky while he tries to shoot a film scene. Shifting between fantasy and reality, Ali momentarily dies during the film shoot when he opts to join his bride on an aerial sojourn around the island. Despite being content to stay with his wife, Ali is eventually returned back to the land of the living. Festivals: Cannes Film Festival 1998
