Over My Dead Body
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
The film's original world music score has been featured at the 2021 Dances With Films Festival, Los Angeles.
Directed by Meital Cohen-Navarro, Over My Dead Body explores an internal conflict surrounding a family of Jewish immigrants from Iran, living in present-day Los Angeles. The film offers a window into the taboo subjects of religious intolerance and intermarriage outside of one's culture.
When a young Jewish Persian-American woman tells her parents that her fiancé is Muslim, they make her choose between him and them.
The film has won the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival Best Narrative Short award, 2021, and has been nominated for several other awards, including Best Short Film in both the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival and the UK Jewish Film Festival.
