Introduction by Saman Mostafavi, Ph.D. candidate in Electrical Engineering. A discussion panel will follow the screening.
When a couple (Shahab Hosseini and Taraneh Alidoosti) are forced to vacate their collapsing upscale apartment building, a friend offers them a new space to live but doesn’t relay that it was formerly inhabited by a prostitute. While home alone at night and taking a shower, the wife is attacked, and has difficulty coping in the aftermath. Amidst all this tumult, the couple rehearse their respective roles in a community production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. (Violet LeVoit).
