Terrestrial Verses by Ali Asgari and Alireza Khatami is a critical tragicomedy in the spirit of the Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami. Asgari and Khatami sharply point out abuses in their country and paint a searing portrait of abuse of power and narrow-mindedness, focusing on the resilience of individuals.
