The Double

A story of a man and his double who makes his fantasies come true...

Acerca de

The film depicts the story of an Iranian man named ARASH, with an independent and visible double in France.

Upset with the problems associated with his home country Iran and his privet life, he goes to his dentist. A simple misunderstanding in the discussion will cause a real quarrel between them.

Through his double, ARASH made his most violent fantasies: the murder of an old Iranian prince who has a plan to have a child by performing artificial insemination with MOJHAN the companion of ARASH.

Sobre el creador de proyecto

 

Ali Kazemi (director and scriptwriter)


I am 31 years old and will receive my master’s degree in Film Directing from the University of Paris 8 in October.

My first experiences in theater were in Iran as an actor, set designer and director. I have made a medium-length documentary on the social situation in the provincial Iranian society. Later I came to France and began studying cinema in Strasbourg. After obtaining the BA, I continued my studies in Paris.

Bresson, Tarkovsky, Angelopoulos, Kiarostami and more recently Nuri Bilge Ceylan are my favorite filmmakers.


 

 

Ulysses' Gaze (Theodoros Angelopoulos - 1995) 


 

Climates (Nuri Bilge Ceylan - 2006)

 


Despite my various experiences in the short film as director, actor and assistant director in France, in some way I consider this project as my first film.

I want to do it with a professional team. To reach this aim, we contacted some of the professionals from the local audiovisual sector of Alsace that we had the chance to benefit from their achievements during our studies.
