Dormishian’s ‘White Chairs’ Depicts People United in Tragedy

Celebrated filmmaker Reza Dormishian’s fourth feature film ‘White Chairs’ premiered at the 41st International Sao Paulo Film Festival last week and was welcomed by the audience in all five showings.
Brazilian film critic Vitor Guimaraes has written a piece on the movie in the website Observatorio Do Cinema, observatoriodocinema.bol.uol.com.br, describing it as a beautiful surprise that is worth to be conferred for its sensitivity.
“One of the best experiences that can occur with a movie buff when following a film festival is to be surprised by a movie that was completely off their radar. And that is exactly what happened to me with ‘White Chairs’, a co-production between Iran and New Zealand,” he wrote.
The movie shows a city in New Zealand after an earthquake devastated the place and life of many people living there. In the scenario, a boy and a girl whose lives were destroyed by the tragedy fall in love and start an emotional relationship without ever speaking a word to each other.
“Composed of so many silences and soliloquies, Dormishian’s film has a contemplative mood for its narration and explores the characters’ feelings towards each other and their losses,” Guimaraes said. “If the story leaves a little to be desired in its development, on the other hand, the imaginative inventiveness and good sound work end up compensating in this sensitive narrative that accompanies two people united by the loss”.
The cast, in the English-language film, includes actors from New Zealand Mathew Joils, Emily Hurley, Michael Adams and Stephen R. Caran among others.
