The TIFF Midnight Madness section will screen our Iranian drama ZALAVA, which premiered at Venice Critics' Week. ZALAVA is sat in 1978, where the inhabitants of a small village in Iran called Zalava claim there is a demon among them. Massoud, a young gendarmerie sergeant, who investigates this claim encounters an exorcist attempting to rid the village of the demon. When he arrests the exorcist on charges of fraud, the villagers fear and anger escalates.
