Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin film festival 2020 and banned in Iran, this powerful film combines four linked stories of ordinary people helplessly living within a repressive political structure. The clever link in the stories is that they are all affected in one way or another by the system of capital punishment. Rasoulof’s superb directing cleverly weaves the banality of everyday life with the shocking and soul-poisoning stories that underpin the reality of those lives.
This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
