Playing at Sundance in the NEXT section on January 19th is A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Billed as the first ever Iranian Vampire Western, the first black and white teaser trailer has just been released, and I am sure you’ll agree that it is very unsettling indeed.
The film is written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, and the cast includes Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Marshall Manesh and Mozhan Marno.
Here is the Sundance official synopsis:
Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps and other sordid souls, is a bastion of depravity and hopelessness where a lonely vampire stalks its most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom… blood red.
