Dark Matter

Iran, 2023

Director Karim Lakzadeh channels the French New Wave by way of Jim Jarmusch into this wildly unexpected and entirely welcome independent Iranian production. A trio of aspiring, young filmmakers throw caution — and the hijab (literally) — to the wind when they rob a local gangster to fund their DIY movie. Shot in black and white with an eye to bold angles, Dark Matter exudes a playful cool and an infectious love of cinema. This is a boy, a girl and a gun Iranian-style. 

DCP, b&w and color, in Persian with English subtitles, 82 min. Director: Karim Lakzadeh. Screenwriter: Karim Lakzadeh. With: Shadab Mahdiar, Keyvan Parmar, Iman Sayyad Borhani.
