“A sly, slinky vampire romance set in an imaginary Iranian underworld… spices its genre stew with elements of Lynchian neo-noir and even spaghetti Western.” – Variety

On the lawless streets of Bad City, a mysterious hijab-clad woman can sometimes be seen late at night, prowling the suburbs on a skateboard. For Arash – brash, rebellious and debt-ridden – a chance encounter with this enigmatic woman pulls him out of his brooding ennui, but it seems there’s something decidedly otherworldly about his new object of affection.

Let The Right One In meets Sin City in this lushly atmospheric and beguilingly creepy feature film debut from Ana Lily Amirpour. Shot in luminous black and white and spoken entirely in Farsi, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a sharp-eyed take on Iranian tradition and American suburbia alike, a giddily unique and unexpected genre mash-up – a surreal, impeccably stylised take on the contemporary vampire tale.
