THE NIGHT – Interview with Director Kourosh Ahari

An Iranian couple living in the US become trapped inside a hotel when insidious events force them to face the secrets that have come between them, in a night that never ends.

The 35th annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival just finished and at the fest THE NIGHT held it’s world premiere.  The feature directorial debut of Kourosh Ahari stars award-winning actor Shahab Hosseini.

Kourosh and I chatted the day after his second screening.  We discussed the visual feel of the film, working with Shahab and the rest of the cast, and much more!
