Tehran Taboo

Our next film, on Tuesday 24 March at 19:45, is Tehran Taboo. Director Ali Sazoondeh, in exile in Germany, has turned to rotoscope animation to create a film about the seamy side of life in Iran. Four young people seek happiness, or mere survival, in a land of corrupt judges, hypocritical mullahs, and the ever-present morality police. The animation is bold and the storytelling startling.
