The Chorus


17 mins
7.8 / 10 (270)


A deaf old man wearing a hearing aid is walking in the streets of Rasht. When the surroundings get too noisy, he turns off his sound.

MUBI's take

Experimenting with sound and silence, this charming short moves between the cacophonous Iranian city of Rasht and the inner peace of a deaf man shutting out the world. Building to a sweet final note that illuminates the film’s title, The Chorus is an elegant meditation on isolation and community.
