Careless Crime
Shahram Mokri
Iran 2020
139min
OV w/ EN subtitles

In 1978, four men set fire to a movie theater in Abadan, ending the lives of more than 400 people and becoming one of the events that would later trigger the Iranian Revolution. CARELESS CRIME tells the story of a group of four men who are recklessly trying to recreate this event in modern-day Iran. While they plan, we also see some of the people linked to what happened (the theater workers, the audience) and a few scenes from the film shown in the theater during this potential catastrophe.
Structured as a series of sequence shots and time-loops, Shahram Mokri’s film is an exploration of cinema’s ability to deal with time and even transform the experience of time itself into various different forms. It deals with time as history, thinking about the weight that facts from the past carry in the present. It also works with the effects of repetitions, routines, habits, and negations and how these gently impede life continuing into the future. But mostly, it examines different forms of narration, moving forward and moving backward to reshape our experience of a story, and of fiction as a thinking device, creating its own narrative as if it were a living, breathing creature. (Lucía Salas)
