Description

Nobody Dies Here

(Hossein Kondori, Iran, 2016, 78 minutes, North American Premiere)

OFFICIAL TRAILER

To fulfill his military training requirements, a soldier named Ashkan (Houman Seyedi) accepts a post at a remote border patrol station. Really not much more than a dilapidated stone ruin, the station is a study in neglect and isolation. But the worst part is the isolation: left for weeks at a time with nothing but his memories and fears to keep him company, Ashkan begins to wonder whether he’s losing his grip on reality. There’s a woman from the valley below who keeps turning up at the strangest times, and there are noises in the night which suggest Ashkan might not be as alone as it first appeared. He’s hearing voices, but from where? Outside the stone solitary cell, or inside his head? A powerful and cinematically suggestive study in the effects of prolonged solitude on the vulnerable mind, Nobody Dies Here speaks to anyone who has ever been left for too long in their own company.

*Playing with The Essence of Life (Behnam Darvishpour, Iran, 2017, 20 minutes) and Sands of Time (Ali Saeedi, Canada, 2016, 3 minutes)

*Skype Q & A with Director Hossein Kondori to follow the screening
