There is No Evil


Banned from filmmaking in Iran, director Mohammad Rasoulof returns to cinema with another moving critique of capital punishment in his home country. This brilliant anthology feature unfolds across various separative narratives detailing how four Iranian tasked with enforcing the country’s death penalty struggle with their options, grapple with the fallout of their decisions, and witness the impact of their choices on those closest to them. Told with compassion and intention, this story of moral introspection is both uniquely Iranian and incredibly universal. Introduction by Pardis Minuchehr (UVA).
