I Hate the Dawn (Man az sepideye sobh bizaram)
Babak Karimi. Amir Azizi, Mohammad Ahmadi, Hossein Eskandari, Mahsa Zarif, Masoud Zarif / Fiction / Persian
Life mirrors film in this playful tale of love and cinema.
Experienced independent filmmaker Babak is driving to a shoot with his assistant, Amir, who explains his fatigue by saying the script he's working on has been keeping him awake at night. The curious Babak persuades Amir to tell him the plot, and soon the older director also becomes obsessed with the story Amir wants to film. They reach the shooting location, a public park, where further stories unfold... Both light-hearted and philosophical, this assured debut feature shows the influence of Iran's most famous director, Abbas Kiarostami. [PG]
