It was just over a month ago that BAFTA nominated director Babak Anvari began the shoot on his Farsi language horror film Under The Shadow
in Jordan, and with that shoot now complete ScreenAnarchy is pleased to bring you the first poster art and stills from the film.
Tehran, 1988. Shideh lives amid the chaos of the Iran-Iraq war. Accused
of subversion and blacklisted from medical college, she is in a state of
malaise. Furthermore, her husband is at war, leaving her alone to
protect their young daughter, Dorsa. Shortly after a missile hits their
apartment building but fails to explode, Dorsa falls ill and her
behaviour becomes increasingly disturbed. Searching for answers, Shideh
learns from a superstitious neighbour that the cursed, unexploded
missile might have brought in djinns - malevolent spirits that travel on
the wind. Convinced that a supernatural force within the building is
attempting to possess Dorsa, Shideh finds she has no choice but to
confront it if she is to save her daughter.
