    DIRECTOR: Jonas Poher Rasmussen
    CAST: Rashid Aitouganov, Daniel Karimyar & Fardin Mijdzadeh
    In this animated documentary by writer and director Jonas Poher Rasmussen (What He Did), the story of Amin is revealed. At first, he just seems like a Denmark academic who is on the verge of marriage becoming the next step in his life. Before he takes that giant leap into blissful matrimony, however, he bares his soul by revealing his dark and sinister past. His tale is so strange for its secrecy that it could only be told through the imaginative power of animation. Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won the Grand Jury Prize in the World Cinema Documentary category. Read more
