February 11 at 3:30pm & February 13 at 6:15pm | When young, pregnant driving instructor Farzaneh (Taraneh Alidoosti, ABOUT ELLY) spots her husband Jalal (Navid Mohammadzadeh) on the street, she follows him to an unfamiliar building. Observing his comfortable behavior with another woman, she becomes convinced Jalal is having an affair. When she confronts the woman she suspects as his mistress, she receives another shock: the woman is her mirror image. Mani Haghighi’s (PIG) psychological drama of doppelgängers - with spectacular performances by Alidoosti and Mohammadzadeh at its center - is a knotty, chilling, Hitchcockian puzzle of privilege and opportunity, marriage and trust. Chicago premiere.
