The Hunter (Shekarchi)
Rafi Pitts, Mitra Hajjar Sara, Ali Nicksaulat, Hassan Ghalenoi, Manoochehr Rahimi, Ismail Amini, Nasser Madahi / Fiction / Persian
A vengeful man stares through the crosshairs at life and death.
Ex-con Ali (Rafi Pitts) works as a nightwatchman to support his wife and young daughter. Returning home to find them both missing, his life is shattered, and the relentless pursuit of retribution becomes his final obsession. As director and actor, Pitts’ work is outstanding. Revolving around his own magnetic central performance, The Hunter is a powerful thriller that lingers in the mind long after the last gunshot rings out.
#1/ Friday 18 June, 2010 / 23:27 GMTSaw this tonight and thought it was really captivating. It's got alot of power within it but I was totally blown away by the fascinating twists and I really loved the way sound was used. It won't be everyone's cup of tea but it really is one that needs to be seen.
The Q&A afterwards was enthralling and I could listen to Rafi Pitts talk about how the film was made and his experiences for hours he was really great, entertaining and really honest about the whole experience.
