The comedy/drama “Fremont,” showing Monday-Saturday, Sept. 11-16, centers on Donya (Anaita Wali Zada), a 20-something Afghan translator who used to work with the U.S. government and has trouble sleeping. She lives by herself in Fremont, California, in a building with other Afghan immigrants, and her life follows a lonely routine. The situation changes when she’s promoted to writing the fortunes at her job at a fortune-cookie factory in the city. As her fortunes are read by strangers throughout the Bay, Donya’s smoldering longing drives her to send a message out to the world, unsure where it will lead. “Fremont” has been called “Lovely and hypnotically deadpan” by Variety, and “Delightfully warm and comically offbeat” by The Playlist. The film is not rated and runs for 91 minutes.
