Farnoosh Samadi talks about making of Gaze (Persian)

GAZE directed by Farnoosh Samadi won the Grand Jury Award for Live Action Short at the AFI Fest.

Jury Statement: "No good deed goes unpunished" is the phrase that stays with the viewer as you watch the film that captured the top honor this year. The filmmaker lures you in and then, like any classic thriller, hooks you until the final gasp __ the low hum of a motorbike replacing John Williams' iconic notes in JAWS. Underneath, the film is a subtle examination of class and gender in Iranian society.
