Shot in secret and smuggled out of Iran, There is No Evil is an anthology feature comprised of four intimate stories of men who are faced with an unthinkable but simple choice – to follow orders to enforce the death penalty upon others, or not. Whatever they decide, it will directly or indirectly corrode their inner selves, their relationships, and their lives. Says director Mohammad Rasoulof: “as responsible citizens, do we have a choice when enforcing the inhumane orders of despots? As human beings, to what extent are we to be held responsible for carrying out those orders? Where does the duality of love and moral responsibility leave us?” Suspenseful, mysterious, and shot through with a sense of urgency, Rasoulof’s film is an incisive look at the moral strength and inner humanity of its protagonists.

  • "THERE IS NO EVIL weaves a rich, engrossing artistic tapestry that interrogates a number of the psychological, moral and cultural dimensions of executing people...it’s a determined probe into the soul of a nation that permits so much legal bloodshed."

  • "[Rasoulof's] sense of drama has the revelatory power of documentary."

    —Richard Brody, The New Yorker

    —Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
