During the Iraq-Iran war a missile lands in an apartment block, bringing with it mysterious spirits to haunt a mother and daughter.
In the 80's, during the war between the Islamic post-revolutionary Iran and Iraq, Shideh is left to take care of her feverish daughter Dorsa alone when her husband is assigned to work in a war zone. Dorsa’s fears of demonic Djinns, shapeless creatures of Islamic mythology, exacerbate when a missile strikes their building. Shideh is driven to research Djinns and finds that there is an evil entity in the apartment with designs on her daughter.
About Film Unit
Film Unit is the award winning independent cinema located in the Sheffield Students' Union. Founded in 1949, we are a group of cinema lovers who desire to provide entertainment, to be not for profit, and to promote film as an art form.
We screen a selection of films on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during term time, with the cheapest ticket price in Yorkshire. We specially curate our programme with blockbusters, independent, foreign, family and classic cinema to ensure we provide something for everyone. For us, cinema should be for everyone, so all our programme is open to the public, our matinee screenings are Hard of Hearing friendly with subtitles and this semester we are hosting a special Autism-friendly screening. We're also working with Unite the Union to bring you two very special free screenings of Ken Loach's newest masterpiece and on April Fools' Day, we're holding a hilarious Fools Festival of British Comedy Cinema. We are volunteer-run so if you'd like to get involved, please get in touch.
Once again many thanks to all our staff, volunteers and of course, our audience!
PLEASE NOTE: Online ticket sales include a 10% booking fee.
