Silence of the Sea

Directed by Vahid Mousaian, has its North American premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, which ran from January 15th to January 25th, in Park City, Utah. This complex metaphorical film that deals with displacement and identity, was selected from among 1000 feature films for Sundance, the most prestigious American film festival, for the World Cinema section.

The film premiered at The Egyptian Theater on January 16th and had three more screenings during the ten-day festival. All shows were sold out, and talk about the film was widespread. Unfortunately the World Cinema section did not have any Jury or prizes, though it was announced that from 2005 on a Jury and awards would be established.

Variety published a great review of the film from Sundance on January 29th. They called it an excellent film and recommended its distribution in the United States.
