A young couple’s relationship is tested through a long winter’s night of moral dilemmas and impossible choices in “Disappearance” (Napadid Shodan) Studio Cinema, 376 Trapelo Rd. The film is an Iranian/Qatari production in Persian with subtitles is presented as part of Belmont World Film’s 17 annual International Film Series.
The first feature from experienced shorts director Ali Asgari is a precisely crafted, modestly proportioned drama that draws out the wider political resonance from a tale of individual heartache.
Dr. Zahra Lotfi, a Middle Eastern Studies scholar who focuses on women’s issues, will be the night’s special speaker.
