Working in defiance of a lifelong ban on filmmaking, dissident director Mohammad Rasoulof (A MAN OF INTEGRITY, MANUSCRIPTS DON'T BURN) delivers a piercing drama about a subject he knows well: the costs of living under a repressive, brutal government. Winner of the Golden Bear, the top prize at the Berlin Film Festival, THERE IS NO EVIL is a film in four chapters, each telling a different story related to the death penalty in contemporary Iran. The first story concerns a family man who, as we come to see, pays a grave moral price for his comfortable middle-class life. The second and third chapters focus on conscripted soldiers — in Iran, it is often these men who are forced to perform executions — and both segments explore the tension and turmoil that can come with such harsh coercion. The final section involves a family secret, which brings the film to its powerful conclusion. Suspenseful, mysterious and shot through with a sense of urgency, Rasoulof's work bears the mark of an artist who sets his own terms — and who knows just how to captivate an audience. Winner, Golden Bear, Guild Film Prize and Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, 2020 Berlin International Film Festival. Official Selection, 2020 Taipei, Hamburg, Calgary, São Paulo, Busan and Tokyo film festivals.
