"If we lose our connection as human beings, is there any difference between us and other creatures?”
Taboor, titled after a mythological term for ‘navel of the earth’, is a film about alienation. A man dressed in aluminium foil rides through Teheran (Iran) at night on a motorbike. His mission: exterminate cockroaches. Passageways, tunnels and flights of steps form a labyrinth through which our hero moves, filmed by Vakilifar in a hypnotizing rhythm.
