Fish & Cat (ماهی و گربه) (2013)

Directed by Shahram Mokri
Iran | R | Drama, Horror, Mystery | Persian | 134 min
Venue: Warehouse 68, Alserkal Avenue
Time: Nov 28, 7:00pm, Dec 1, 5:00pm

Based on true events, ‘Fish and Cat’ centers around a group of students travelling to the Caspian region in order to participate in a kite-flying event during the Winter solstice. Next to their camp is a small restaurant, run by three cooks, who are just about to leave for a hunt. They are in desperate need of meat. However, there is nothing around, other than the students. Shahram Mokri’s second feature combines formal experimentation with terror and a sly sense of humor, perfectly blended in this highly unusual piece of Iranian film history.
