Fish & Cat (Iran, 2013)
April 26, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM$10
UCLA Film & Television Archive presents “UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema.”
Fish & Cat (Mahi va gorbeh) (Iran, 2013)
Directed by Shahram Mokri.
Selected for New Directors/New Films in 2014, Fish & Cat heralds the emergence of a fresh and original new voice in Iranian cinema. Shot entirely in a single, black and white bravura camera take, writer-director Shahram Mokri’s second feature plays mind-bending games with time and place while a pair of potential serial killer cannibals stalk a group of camping students at a lake. Thoroughly creepy, but never (really) gory, Fish & Cat reveals an absurdist, apocalyptic edge in the end that suggests more the influence of Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr, than American horror films.
Screenwriter: Shahram Mokri. With: Babak Karimi, Saeed Ebrahimifar, Siavash Cheraghipoor, Mohammad Berahmani, Faraz Modiri.
In Persian with English subtitles, 134 min.
