Every Angel is Terrifying is a lyrical and poetic film that narrates a day of Hossein's life, a German literature professor and an expert on Rilke's poetry, in Tehran. He is also a poet and has translated a selection of Rilke's poetry into Persian. The highlight of his day is that Hossein has finally managed to book a recording session in a prestigious sound studio, to record the recitation of his translated poems professionally. But the day's mood suddenly and drastically changes as he receives a few phone calls that bear life-changing news. This film is a beautiful meditation on art and life and the profound resonances of a poet across cultures
