VOTD: 20-minute documentary examines the making of ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’


Ever wonder how this Iranian film was made?

Now you can learn from director Ana Lily Amirpour as she discusses her influences and what attached her to this story in a 20-minute documentary on the making of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. In the video, Amirpour discusses with Elijah Wood why she came on board the project, the comparisons it gets to A Mood for Love by Wong Kar-wai, the history of the character, and her “hero” David Lynch and the film that most influenced her own movie.

The film has some fans on this site with our own Liam Ball examining the music and rebellion in the film. The initial review for the movie said:

Her film is like a cinematic echo of such wanderings, a repository of all kinds of worldly influences, cinematic and musical and literary: the dialogue is in Persian, but the setting looks like small-town America; the solitary, dusty imagery belongs in a Western, but the protagonist is a vampiress who wears her chador like a superhero cape; and, to conclude the genre salad, the story of young lovers, everlasting nights, and drug dealers is electrifying, modern noir.

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night can be viewed on Netflix.
