VTIFF Screening: Terrestrial Verses

July 6 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5 – $10

This audacious film consists of nine scenes, all single-takes from a static camera, yet it is utterly riveting. In the vignettes, all set in Tehran, nine ordinary Iranians from a variety of backgrounds face off against an unseen, uncaring and frequently hostile bureaucrat. The absurdity and horror of authoritarian control is ultimately laid bare.

A new father seeks to register his newborn son under the name David, but is told that the name is insufficiently Islamic; a 20-something rideshare driver caught on camera without a hijab attempts to retrieve her impounded car; a man with poem tattoos applies for a driver’s license; an elderly woman pleads with the police for the return of her beloved dog. None of it goes well.
