Pig (Khook)

Mani Haghighi

Entry to the International Feature Award Competition

A serial killer unsettles Teheran’s art scene. Terrible news about beheaded filmmakers with the word “PIG” carved into their foreheads accumulate daily. Hasan Kasmai is baffled: Why is he not attacked rather than all these “Nonames”? His life already gives him enough reason to whine. Ever since he was put on the blacklist two years ago, he has not been allowed to make feature films. Now, he has to deal with the most annoying things: filming advertisements to make a living, keeping his favoured actress Leila far away from other filmmakers, constantly going to funerals. The murderer skipping him is another thorn in his conceited side. Until, after a series of bizarre misunderstandings, he himself suddenly becomes the prime suspect.
