Mohammad Rasoulof

MOHAMMAD RASOULOF (*1973) has already been a guest at FILMFEST HAMBURG several times, most recently in 2017 with "A Man of Integrity". Rasoulof has been imprisoned many times for his criticism of the regime. None of his films have ever been officially shown in Iran.

A leaky freighter is drifting offshore somewhere on the Persian Gulf. While the captain is still trying to persuade the owner to give up the ageing vessel, poverty-stricken locals have claimed it for themselves. Births, deaths and marriages take place onboard as the ship steers towards an unforeseeable fate. Warm and ironic, the film is an astute allegory of Iranian culture.
