Win Under the Shadow Limited-Edition Blu-ray Box set
‘Thoughtful, provocative and increasingly scary fare… succeeds equally as feminist fable, fractured family drama and full-on fright-fest’
Best Film of 2016
Mark Kermode, The Observer
Iranian director Babak Anvari’s Sundance 2016 hit Under the Shadow is loved by audiences and critics alike. Part ghost story, part social thriller with cutting political commentary, the film is already considered a genre classic and is set for its UK Blu-ray debut on 10 February, in a feature packed Limited-Edition box set. We have 5 copies to give away courtesy of Second Sight.
1988 Tehran, Shideh (Narges Rashidi) is rejected by her medical school as a consequence of her politically active history. Her husband is sent off to serve in the Iran-Iraq War as air raids draw perilously close to their own apartment. Neighbours and friends flee from a city in chaos and Shideh and her daughter Dorsa (Avin Manshadi) are left on their own, but Dorsa starts to become increasingly disturbed. Tantrums sparked by a missing doll are initially dismissed, but as they worsen Shideh becomes terrified that they’ve been targeted by a djinn – a malevolent spirit that steals from those it seeks to possess.
Take a look Under the Shadow…if you dare.
