Film Website



A poet despairs at the world. This angry, visionary film portrays a Teheran of the near future: in the stranglehold of censorship and a deadly virus. The city is a tip, there is 24/7 surveillance and an appalling epidemic: the population of Teheran has the choice between isolation and emigration. Drug-addict and poet Peyman lives with his mother in a block overlooking the airport. Worn out by the situation and frightened by the rumour that war is coming, more and more of his friends and acquaintances leave. Only Peyman remains, in a shadowy world between reality and fiction.


BARDIA YADEGARI (*1980) is a screenplay writer, director and poet. In 2016, he published his first book that has not yet been released in Iran. EHSAN MIRHOSSEINI (*1980) made a series of shorts and with District Terminal celebrates his debut feature. He played one of the leads in Mohammad Rasoulof‘s There is no Evil.
