A principled goldfish farmer is besieged by corrupt corporate and government interests in this searing drama from one of Iran’s contemporary masters. As with his similarly powerful omnibus There Is No Evil (winner of the Audience Award at the 2021 Wisconsin Film Festival), Rasoulof directed A Man of Integrity in bold defiance of a ban on filmmaking by the Iranian government. Winner of the Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
