“The Underground” to Premiere at Toronto Intl Film Festival

A young Iranian man struggles to fit into a new culture, his poverty and isolation leading him to imagine himself as an insect, absorbing the world through its senses. Inspired by Rawi Hage’s bestselling novel Cockroach, this visceral tale of alienation and delirium creates a magical-realist aesthetic that is both gritty and poetic.

Directed & Written by: Michelle Latimer
Produced by: Tara Woodbury & Kerry Swanson
