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 relaxed. There is conversation, food, singing, dancing.  

When Elly suddenly disappears, the mood changes drastically and we witness an exhausting search that generates a tangle of lies and half truths. And then, suddenly, Elly’s fiancé appears.

We see a group of people struggling with their morals. The carefree atmosphere turns to disaster. Solidarity crumbles and everyone’s individual interests come to the fore. Does an individual dare betray another if she can protect the group by doing so? Which truth is true, and for whom? And is truth really all that relevant? Or might a lie bring salvation?

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