In contemporary Iran, Rahim in on a two-day leave from prison during which he tries to rectify his situation. His seemingly good intentions become ever more complicated by the situation his actions create. At turns funny, poignant, and suspenseful, "A Hero" asks pointed questions about individual morality and social values. What is honor? Who is a hero and who is a villain? How can we distinguish between generosity and self-interest? This insightful story is both a riveting thriller and an intricately layered drama that cuts to the heart of human complexity.

The film will be followed by a discussion with Roberta Micallef, Professor of the Practice in World Languages and Literatures at Boston University. Prof. Micallef teaches courses on modern Middle Eastern Literature, Modern Middle Eastern Film, Turkic Literatures, and Travel Literature. She is also a core faculty member in the Women’s Gender and Sexuality Program. Her scholarship is focused on women’s narratives and an investigation of the female gaze.

Co-presented by the Global Film Series and the Arts and Humanities Division
