UCLA Film & Television Archive presents “UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema”
A Man of Integrity (Iran, 2017)
Directed by Mohammad Rasoulof
Reza (Reza Akhlaghirad), a goldfish farmer, and his wife, Hadis (Soudabeh Beizaee), a teacher, struggle to get by, in part because of Reza’s principled refusal to participate in the local culture of kickbacks and bribes. An outsider who relocated his family from Tehran, Reza becomes enmeshed in a violent battle of wills with thuggish officials in the pocket of an unnamed company. Winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes, writer-director Mohammad Rasoulof’s blistering depiction of corruption and injustice resonates well beyond the rural, small-town setting where its story unfolds.
