Directed by Hooman Seyedi
Navid Mohammadzadeh stars as the slow-witted, grasping brother of Shakur (Aslani), a meth dealer and procurer who acts as reigning patriarch for both their impoverished neighborhood and their highly dysfunctional family. When rumors about their sister are exposed, a violent, domestic power struggle breaks into the open. Writer-director Hooman Seyedi doesn’t pull any punches in this sordid tale of corruption that culminates in one of the best action set pieces in contemporary Iranian cinema.
Director: Hooman Seyedi. Screenwriter: Hooman Seyedi. Cast: Navid Mohammadzadeh, Farhad Aslani, Farid Sajjadi Hosseini
DCP, color, 102 min.
FREE admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
