Hassan Khademi - Director
Hassan Khademi completed his Master Degree in Sociology (M.A) at the University of Tehran. He then qualified from The Association of Young Cinematographers. Hassan’s interest in filmmaking falls mainly into subjects related to social issues. His debut documentary, Rapping in Tehran, offers the audience a unique view in the underground culture of Iranian hip hop music, which is still strictly forbidden in the country. Death and the Judge is his second documentary.
Making The Film
Director Hassan Khademi has always wondered whether the person who orders the execution of thousands of people is disgusting or whether he is an ordinary person who does his job accurately. Death and the Judge seeks to answer this question. It should be noted that the production of a film in the field of retaliation and execution is very challenging in Iran, and that the director should respect the political and social red lines. It took four years to make the film, during which the film director accompanied the judge.
