Directed by Reza Jamali (Iran, 2019, 85 min.). In Farsi with English subtitles.

Beautifully filmed in a remote Iranian mountain village, Old Men Never Die is the story of a group of elderly men waiting out their few remaining days together. No one in their village has died since a former hangman, Aslan, moved there out of guilt, and the fear of the families of those he executed. Tired and ready for death, the old men attempt suicide, but are continually thwarted by local soldiers—or, possibly, a divine, cosmic force.
