The story of BECAME BLOOD is like an old house with all its lights off. Nobody lives in its rooms. Meanwhile one of the residents comes in and turns on the lights.
Born in 1941 in Tehran, Masoud Kimiai is best-known for his QAISAR which set a new trend in Iranian cinema and an archetypal formula for problem dramas. Kimiai began his film career as assistant to Samuel Khachikian. In 1968, he made his debut feature, but one year later, he came back with his ground breaking QAISAR and established himself as one of the key figures of Iranian cinema. Up to 1979, most of Kimiai’s films were closely interweaved with the movies of rebellion and vengeance even in his film adaptations –e.g. from Sadegh Hedayat’s novel in DASH AKOL, from Mahmoud Dowlat-Abadi’s novel in THE EARTH and from Jorge Luis Borges’ short story GHAZAL. Although most of Kimiai’s works have been well received by Iranian audience in the last three decades, he is best-known in international scene for SNAKE FANG which was highly-acclaimed in Berlinale.
