Despite his 50 years Parviz still lives off his father and the two men don’t get on very well. Things come to a head when the father tells his son he has decided to remarry. Parviz has no other choice but surrender his place to his step-mother and leave home. Parviz finds it difficult to get used to this new solitary life far from his neighborhood and the people he knows. He thus concocts a novel way of fighting back against the injustice done to him.
‘Parviz’ is the continuation of the exploration that began in my last film, ‘Rainy Seasons.’ An exploration of a particular form of cinema and a portrayal of sections of urban life, the tensions and mundaneness of which form part of my society. I have tried to tell the story of an ordinary man who, as he discovers the destructive aspect of power, is transformed into a different person.
