UNDER THE SHADOW writer/director Babak Anvari talks about his award winning horror with Britflicks’ Podcast host Stuart Wright.
UNDER THE SHADOW has had a fantastic awards run including British Independent Film Award (BIFA) wins for Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay and Best Debut Director, and was a critical hit on release – A sophisticated, subversive and swiftly-paced supernatural thriller set during the terrifying dying days of the Iraq-Iran war.
Synopsis: Tehran, 1988. Shideh lives amid the chaos of the Iran-Iraq war. Accused of subversion and blacklisted from medical college, she is in a state of malaise. Furthermore, her husband is at war, leaving her alone to protect their young daughter, Dorsa. Shortly after a missile hits their apartment building but fails to explode, Dorsa falls ill and her behaviour becomes increasingly disturbed. Searching for answers, Shideh learns from a superstitious neighbour that the cursed, unexploded missile might have brought in djinn – malevolent spirits that travel on the wind. Convinced that a supernatural force within the building is attempting to possess Dorsa, Shideh finds she has no choice but to confront it if she is to save her daughter
UNDER THE SHADOW is available now on Netflix & is released on DVD/Blu-Ray 23 January 2017.
