Dir. Farnoosh Samadi. Iran. 2020, 83 mins. In Persian with subtitles. With Sahar Dolatshahi and Pejman Jamshidi. A schoolteacher from Tehran plans to join her family at a wedding in northern Iran. But when her husband is suddenly obliged to take an out-of-town work trip and forbids her to attend the wedding without him, she’s caught between impulses of independence and fealty, movement and stability. Inspired by true events and evoking the ethical, intensely inhabited tales of Kieslowski’s Decalogue, this debut feature from writer-director Farnoosh Samadi showcases a piercing performance by Sahir Dolatshahi and proves fearless in exploring the depths of regret and grief, and in exploiting our human and societal limitations for accommodating them. U.S. premiere
