Iran, Germany / 2021 / Persian / 117 minutes / DCP / Color
Escalating pollution levels and a deadly virus have transformed Tehran into a festering ghost town. Peyman is a poet and a heroin addict forced to quarantine with his mother, while his friends steadily move overseas. Peyman’s grip on reality begins to slip until the real world and his fantasies become indistinguishable. Part dystopian thriller, part commentary on the global pandemic, District Terminal keenly articulates the anxieties and shifting perspectives we have all endured over the past year.
