Presenting a stark and enigmatic depiction of life in modern-day Iran, this film consciously chooses to sidestep overt social commentary. Instead, it prioritizes an intensely personal perspective of lives trapped under invisible constraints. Directed remotely from Ireland over the Internet by Rouzbeh Rashidi, the production process of Hades of Limbo echoes the sense of alienation it encapsulates. The remote direction underscores the thematic estrangement and adds an intriguing layer to the film's creation, making it even more mysterious.
