Director Mohammad Rasoulof has been making scathing social commentary of the Iranian regime for over a decade, work for which he's been threatened with a prison sentence and a ban on making films. He remains relatively unknown and underappreciated in the US, despite winning numerous prizes at top festivals like Cannes and Berlin. In A MAN OF INTEGRITY, an examination of corruption and state cronyism, Reza leads a simple life along with his wife and young son in a remote village in Northern Iran. He spends his days working on his goldfish farm. Nearby, a private company with close links to the government and local authorities has taken control of nearly every aspect of regional life. Its shareholders, accumulating wealth, power and economic influence, have been pushing local farmers and small owners to sell off their belongings, farms and estates, to the benefit of the company’s influential network and its monopoly--pressuring the villagers into becoming local links in a larger network of corruption.
