26th Houston Iranian Film Festival: Pig (Khook)

Banned from making films, Hasan is doubly frustrated that his muse (Leila Hatami) is working with other directors. There are disagreements with his wife, and his aged mother is getting more and more detached from reality. But most galling of all, a serial killer is going about beheading Iran's finest filmmakers, yet Hasan remains unscathed. Why, when he is one of the greatest, is he being completely ignored? Mani Haghighi (A Dragon Arrives!) directs this lunatic comedy full of hijinks not seen before in Iranian cinema.
