UCLA Film & Television Archive presents “UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema”
The Home (Iran, 2017)
Directed by Asghar Yousefinejad
Writer-director Asghar Yousefinejad knocks us off emotional balance right from the start of his debut feature with a grieving daughter’s explosive protests over the fate of her father’s corpse. Yousefinejad ratchets things up from there, confining the action to follow to the dead man’s home, where a parade of suddenly interested parties intervene, and what begins as a family drama, reveals itself as a sharp satire in which everyone’s motives become suspect. Winner of best film and best screenplay in the international competition at the Fajr Film Festival.
