Zar Amir Ebrahimi and Ali Abbasi attend the Telluride Film Festival
My intention was not to make a serial killer movie. I wanted to make a movie about a serial killer society. It is about the deep-rooted misogyny within society, which is not specifically religious or political but cultural. … Instead of making another movie about different ways a man can kill and mutilate women, we want to underline the complexity of the issue and the stakes on different sides, especially on behalf of the victims.
