A Man of Integrity

Iran 2017 | 117 minutes | Farsi | Hebrew, English subtitles

Reza has left the city to live a simple life with his wife and son in a distant village in Northern Iran where he raises goldfish. His routine is disrupted by a corrupt company with strong ties to the authorities seeking to control every aspect of life in the region, including Reza’s small plot of land. Although resisting pressure and coercion, Reza gradually realizes that he faces powerful, intimidating forces. Mohammad Rasoulof, one of Iran’s bravest contemporary filmmakers, continues to explore how an authoritarian regime succeeds in silencing independent voices. Rasoulof provides a realistic, intense drama for which he was awarded First Prize in the Un Certain Regard competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
