Taboor / Vahid Vakilifar

A man wakes up in a room covered entirely in tin foil. A bed, a desk and a coat rack are all in all his home’s decorative elements. The man gets up, puts on a jump-suit (made also of tin foil), wears his clothes on top and walks out the door. What’s this room? Why is the protagonist wearing that uniform? Where is he driving to with his bike? In which city is he in? What year? Taboor is steeped in such a mysterious fog that it takes on a sci-fi quality. Tehran becomes the timeless setting of a Lynchian story that hypnotizes with its rhythm and evocative music score. Corridors, tunnels and staircases pull the protagonist onto a long and labyrinthine course. His loneliness might be easy to hide in the darkness, within which he moves with ease, what he really pines for though is the warmth of the light.
