DOCUNIGHT – Kahrizak

Four directors of different ages and levels of experience, each present a view of the Kahrizak Charity Centre, introducing us to fascinating characters and rituals, and a reflection on life and death itself. Presented in episodes, we are introduced to the situation of the elderly; a blind and disabled man without hands and legs, who performs Hamlet; and the Centre’s Feast of Sacrifice.

2012 – 86 min

Directed by Rakhshan Bani Etemad, Mohsen Amiryoussefi, Bahman Kiarostami, Pirooz Kalantari

Hamlet in Kahrizak

 

 

Every last Tuesday of every month, Docunight will screen a documentary about, around, in, made by Iran or Iranians.  The screenings will take place on the same night across several cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, London, and Dubai (the list of locations is growing). Docunight films will be diverse in subject and will run the gamut.  All films will have English subtitles.
