Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom…blood red.
Following our sold-out Miami premiere of “My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell it To”, director Jonathan Cuartas once again joins us at Tower Theater Miami for our very first TOWER TALKS event! A new series led by a different guest programmer each month, Jonathan will lead a discussion about a film that has greatly inspired him and his work: acclaimed Iranian horror film “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night”!
