move out and live in a place he has rented for him.

assistance, begin to treat him as a pariah.

forceful aspects of his personality. In discovering the violent power he
can yield he begins to show his father and the other residents that they cannot
cast him out of their lives so easily.

‘Parviz’ is the continuation of the exploration
that began in my last film, ‘Rainy Seasons.’ An exploration of a particular form
of cinema and a portrayal of sections of urban life, the tensions and
mundaneness of which form part of my society. I have tried to tell the story of
an ordinary man who, as he discovers the destructive aspect of power, is
transformed into a different person.
