Rouhollah Hejazi's Death of the Fish was one of the most popular screenings at CineIran 2016. This year, he's back with another stunner, The Dark Room. A daring film by any standards, and more so by those of Iranian cinema, the film tackles the challenging topic of child sexual abuse. Featuring two sensational performances from Sareh Bayat and Saed Soheili, The Dark Room is at once a tense whodunit thriller and a dark marital drama, and places Hejazi among the higher echelon of Iranian filmmakers.
