PIG (2018)


PIG is a dark satire on artistic egotism from actor, writer and director Mani Haghighi (A DRAGON ARRIVES!, Asghar Farhadi's ABOUT ELLY). Hasan Majuni plays Hasan, a famous movie director whose career has languished since he was placed on a government blacklist. His favorite actress and mistress (Leila Hatami) seems ready to move on, professionally and personally. Worst of all, a serial killer beheading Iran's most esteemed filmmakers has conspicuously neglected to target him. (The killer is displaying "no criteria, no sense of stature" in choosing his victims, Hasan complains to his mother.) Out of desperation, the frustrated filmmaker embarks on a plan to launch his career into orbit. (Note courtesy of the Freer|Sackler.) DIR/SCR/DIR Mani Haghighi. Iran, 2018, color, 108 min. In Persian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
