The Salp

Written by Thomas Büsch on . Posted in Feed the Sense, The Passenger

Sarcastic, irreverent, The Slap (Sili) uses codes from silent film to make fun of its characters and our preconceptions. A young woman, an old woman, a young soldier and a colonel share a compartment on a train going from Tehran to Sari. The train enters a tunnel, we hear a kiss and a slap. Each of the characters, except the culprits, has a different interpretation of the event.

The director, Ehsan Amani (born in 1948), shoots mostly documentaries, short movies and advertisements. He has acted in many films, such as Crimson Gold, Abadan and A Few Days Later.

The Slap was shot in 2007 and presented at the 2008 Pangea Day, an international event promoting tolerance and unity through films.
