Absence of Mr. & Mrs. B

  • Iran
Audio Tracks 

In a remote Iranian village, a wife and her husband have been married for years without conceiving. Iran’s policy requiring married couples to have children places additional strain on the couple, whose relationship is already deeply troubled. Mr and Mrs B make repeated trips to IVF clinics, without success. The social pressure to have a child compounds the couple’s anxiety and drives a wedge even further between them, whilst demanding that they continue to have an intimate relationship. This film explores an unstable marriage made worse by infidelity, violence and an unforgiving society.
