Directed by David Dusa | 2010

With Rachid Yousef, Alice Belaïdi

Both topical and timeless, Flowers of Evil captures the spirit of a new generation navigating the turbulence of a globalizing world (as well as the complexities of cross-cultural young love) with tweets, YouTube clips, and smart phones. When 24-year-old Anahita is forced to leave Tehran during the heavily contested 2009 Iranian elections, she draws the attention of a rebellious French-Algerian working as a bellhop at her Parisian hotel. While her passion attracts him, his carefree, apolitical lifestyle irritates her, and their unlikely romance unfolds against a backdrop of real footage chronicling the violent, revolutionary moment in Anahita’s homeland. An official selection at the 2011 International Film Festival Rotterdam.

In French and Persian with English subtitles
