About the A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night 💬


  • The first Iranian Vampire Western

Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom... blood red.

The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Amped by a mix of Iranian rock, techno and Morricone-inspired riffs, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn-out scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the surrealism of David Lynch.

  • DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

It's like Sergio Leone and David Lynch had an Iranian rock 'n' roll baby, and then Nosferatu came and babysat for them. It's shot in black and white; it has a crazy awesome soundtrack and an incredible cast. I wanted to make an Iranian film, but the question was how? Since I obviously can't shoot in Iran, the solution became the invention of the entire film; I found a desolate, vacant oil-town in the desert of California which became the fictitious Iranian ghost-town Bad City, and suddenly there were no rules. I created my own universe and made the rules. And the cast of characters are inspired by pop icons I love from the 50's all the way through the 90's, like James Dean, Sophia Loren, Ninja from Die Antwoord, and of course, the limitless possibilities of a Vampire. I wanted the look and feel to be timeless, and truly complete the mythical and surreal feeling of the story, so that's why I shot in black and white anamorphic; it gave us this graphic look, and the film suddenly became a truly genre-blending experience.

It's impossible to talk about making this film without talking about music. Music has been a big part of my life; I was singer and bass player of a rock band for many years, and now love DJ'ing, so it's natural that music is also a vital part of this film. The soundtrack was very much a part of the design of the film, at the script level. Each song you hear was picked in advance, and the power of music is so massive that it leads the way in the filmmaking. It's the magic that transports a moment into another dimension.

  • THE GRAPHIC NOVEL

When I was writing A GIRL WALK HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, a story with a Vampire, I had to answer the questions of who this Vampire was and is, and this meant writing her entire history. And when I did that, suddenly I had hundreds of years of stories in my hands. The movie is just a fraction of time in her existence, and I was so excited about the entire mythology of the world and its players, and the universe of A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, that I decided to make it into a graphic novel as well. The first issue of the graphic novel is called ''Death is the Answer'', and it's being released concurrently with the premiere of the film.
