Capturing the claustrophobic feeling of living in a system with no clear way out, this essayistic observation on life and death is framed by the concept of the panopticon.

A minimalist reflection on how we are born, live and die in cells, and struggle to find a release. This associative and soul-searching journey passes through the Troglodyte village of Meymand, a secret police prison transformed into a museum, a pigeon house, a high-rise residential complex and the largest cemetery in Iran.


This film will screen as part of the programme Shorts: Iran - A Sense of Place.
