• ABOUT

These days, ‘immigration’ is mostly used together with ‘death’. Being aware of its dangers, people are sometimes forced to immigrate and they do it out of free will which is of course a kind of determinism. Death threats accompany the immigrants all through their journey. But a number of these deaths occur before the outset of immigration. These deaths necessitate immigration. They are under the control of determinism and there is no free will in them, just like the deaths that occur before birth.

‘Larvae’ is a short film written and directed by Bijan Aarabi and Produced by HamidReza Sayyad Daryabakhsh. Iranian film making company, ‘Caspian Film’ is the official distributor of this project.

  • PLOT

A few days before their immigration, the human trafficker is arrested and the couple’s forged documents are discovered by the police. The husband decides that they should flee their country through the mountains. But, the human traffickers do not agree to help the woman due to her physical condition.
