UCLA Film & Television Archive presents “UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema.”
Today (Emrouz) (Iran, 2014)
Directed by Reza Mirkarimi.
Iran’s official submission for Oscar consideration this year, writer-director Reza Mirkarimi’s tense, powerful drama unfolds over a single day in a hospital maternity ward after a taciturn cab driver allows himself to be drawn into the personal crisis of a distraught woman who jumps into his backseat. Mirkarimi keeps his character’s true motivations obscured at every turn as circumstances shift, suspicions mount and the hypocrisy of certain social and cultural taboos are exposed.
Screenwriter: Reza Mirkarimi, Shadmehr Rastin. With: Parviz Parastui, Soheila Golestani, Shabnam Moghadami.
In Persian with English subtitles, 88 min.
FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.! UCLA Festival of Preservation Passes available for $50.
