The inhabitants of a northern Iranian village tell of a leopard that fell in love with a woman…

Vom Nichtsprechen is an animated film in three episodes. The short film relates to longing and foreignness various relationships.

The background is my theoretical diploma thesis on the films by Asghar Farhadi. The central figures in his works are middle class young married couples. They always involve conflicts and associations of moral balance; it is about lies, trust, integrity, failure and how to deal with it.
