"A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night"

Tweetable Logline:

The first Iranian Vampire Western

Elevator Pitch:

A very modern Iranian film and the first Iranian Vampire Western... set in a ghost-town called Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, and the townspeople are a jaded and strange population including a Vampire, a Prostitute, a Pimp, a Drug Addict, a Mean Little boy, a 57 Tbird and the Persian James Dean... amidst the hopelessness, an unlikely love story quietly blooms... and it blooms blood red.

Production Team:

Writer/Director: Ana Lily Amirpour
Producers: Sina Sayyah, Justin Begnaud

About the Production:

"A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature film. She's an Iranian-American filmmaker whose parents left Iran in the 70's. This is a story that incorporates her love of the weirdness of David Lynch, the Vampire genre, Sergio Leone westerns, and her Iranian-American background into one cultural, genre and mind-bending film. Everything from the characters, the look, a modern soundtrack of persian hip-hop and euro-pop make this a truly modern Iranian film- the first ever Iranian Vampire movie." -- Ana Lily Amirpour
