Fat Shaker by Mohammad Shirvani (2013, 85 min.). Truly bizarre and cryptic images fill almost every frame in Shirvani’s film about an oppressive father, his deaf son, and a mysterious woman who enters their lives. The film demands your full attention to see beyond the disjointed scenes that offer a window into a world of corruption and intrusiveness. With jarring camerawork and a preference for close-ups, Shirvani’s film “grips you, shakes you up, and tears you down, all the way through” (The Guardian). In Farsi, Dari, and English with English subtitles.
