Sarcastic, irreverent, The Slap (Sili) uses codes from silent film to make fun of its characters and our preconceptions. A young woman, an old woman, a young soldier and a colonel share a compartment on a train going from Tehran to Sari. The train enters a tunnel, we hear a kiss and a slap. Each of the characters, except the culprits, has a different interpretation of the event.
The Slap was shot in 2007 and presented at the 2008 Pangea Day, an international event promoting tolerance and unity through films.
