Before the Burial

Film Synopsis

About twenty years ago, Siamak, a medical student, is expelled from university and sent to prison for his political activities. His life is thrown into confusion in every domain. Having become a bus driver after his release, he deeply regrets what has happened to him and decides to undertake some unfinished business before taking of this world on his fortieth birthday.

The Asia Pacific Screen Academy expresses its respect for and acknowledgement of the South East Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of country, including the custodial communities on whose land works are created and celebrated by the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. We acknowledge the continuing connection to land, waters and communities. We also pay our respects to Elders, past and emerging. We recognise the integral role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and First Nations peoples continue to play in storytelling and celebration spaces.
