After the production A Separation  (2020), tg STAN is drawing once again on the work of the Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, this time exploring the film considered to be his very best: About Elly.

The story takes place by the Caspian Sea, where a group of friends and their children are spending a weekend: Elly, who teaches Sepideh’s child, accompanies them as a guest. Ahmad is recently divorced and returned from Germany a couple of days ago. Sepideh tries to matchmake them. The atmosphere is exuberant. There are lively discussions, they eat, sing, laugh and dance…

A sudden disappearance puts the relations between them on edge. We see a group of people wrestling with their morals as the carefree makes way for drama. The solidarity crumbles and individual interests come to the fore.

Will one individual dare to betray another if that is the way to protect the group? Which truth is true and for whom? And is the truth really so relevant? Or can a lie be their salvation?

“I BELIEVE THAT THE SIMILARITIES AMONG THE HUMAN BEINGS ON THIS EARTH AND ITS VARIOUS LANDS FAR OUTWEIGH THEIR DIFFERENCES.”
Asghar Farhadi
