There is No Evil
Four stories centred around four separate state-sanctioned executioners, whose job it is to kill, for their daily wages.
Winner of the Golden Bear for best film at the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival.
‘Rasoulof’s haunting new drama… reveals horrific truths about capital punishment in Iran, and its revelations are all the more trenchant given that the Iranian government carries out executions in secret, without public observers. Rasoulof’s feature… takes the place of impossible documentary reporting on the subject… “There Is No Evil” is the story of a country that’s haunted by the ghosts of its victims, who are more vital and whole than the killers who, in their living death, are society’s zombies.’—Richard Brody, The New Yorker
