The Bright Day by Hossein Shahabi (2013, 86 min.). A kindergarten teacher tries to save the life of a student’s father, who is accused of unintentional homicide. There are seven witnesses to the crime, but no one intends to tell the whole truth because of the victim’s family power and influence. Well-received by Iranian critics and audiences, Shahabi navigates complex social issues with effectiveness and appeal.
