A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Ana Lily Amirpour, 2014
USA | Persian with English subtitles | Format: DCP | 107 minutes

Opening Night

Director Ana Lily Amirpour and Producer Sina Sayyah in person for both screenings.

This super-stylish and spellbinding Persian take on the vampire genre doubles as a compact metaphor for the current state of Iran. Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut feature guides us on a dreamlike walk on the wild side, into the nocturnal and sparsely populated underworld of “Bad City,” an Iran of the mind that nevertheless rings true. In a cool and brooding scenario that involves just a handful of characters, an alluring female vampire stalks potential victims with a judgmental eye—but isn’t immune to romantic desire when it presents itself in the form of a young hunk who’s looking for a way out of his dead-end existence. With to-die-for high-contrast black-and-white cinematography and a sexy cast that oozes charisma, horror has seldom seemed so hot.

A limited number of tickets to the 7:00pm screening will be available at the door. A standby line for the 8:00pm will form at the MoMA film desk an hour before showtime.
