Additional Information

Bomb, A Love Story (Iran, 2018)

The epic scope and cinematic ambition of writer- director Payman Maadi’s second feature (following Snow on the Pines which screened in the 2014 Celebration) is evident right from the beginning: a bravura tracking shot through a bustling, rain swept, nostalgic city set that culminates in a scene of horror. This is life in Tehran circa 1988 during the Iran-Iraq War. Maadi and Leila Hatami star as a husband and wife whose personal tragedy becomes entangled in the larger violence surrounding them and the residents of their apartment building whose lives become a prism through which Maadi explores this traumatic period of Iranian history. DCP, color, 97 min.
