THE ANNOYED

Mehdi Fard Ghaderi | 2023 | 81 MINS
Iran | Subtitles
UK Premiere

Three film directors battle against the odds as they try to realise their most difficult projects to date.

In Detail

The first, wishing to emigrate, learns that his lead actor has been condemned to death, so decides to make a movie about the execution. The second, a woman, wishes to examine abuse, but her husband objects. The third, told by his doctor that he has cancer, determines to make his last definitive work.

With this portmanteau in three sections, Ghaderi offers an absorbing insight into Iran’s creative community and its restrictions, using economical music, unflashy photography and authoritative acting to underscore the clash between ideals and practicality.
