I'm Not Angry

I'm Not Angry  (Iran, 2014)

Asabani nistam!

“Filmmaking this electrifying is rare.” – Hollywood Reporter

The title of director Reza Dormishian’s second feature echoes the prescribed mantra given to Navid (Mohammadzadeh) by his psychiatrist (along with antidepressants) to recite when events feel overwhelmed.  For Navid, a university student expelled for political activity, however, his explosive rage has deeper sources.  Jarring in tone and visually arresting, I’m Not Angry captures the seething frustrations of a generation with a blunt frankness that led to its being pulled from competition at the Fajr Film Festival.
