The Red Line [خط قرمز khat-e qermez] (1982) - (dir: Masud Kimiai) Iranian film poster

This is an Iranian poster by an unknown designer made to promote the 1982 Masoud Kimiai film The Red Line [khat-e qermez] based on a screenplay by Bahram Beizai from his play Shab-e Samur and starring Saeed Rad as Armani. When this film was made both Kimiai and Beizai were in their 40s and had well-established careers in the Iranian film industry. Wikipedia has articles about both of them summarizing their professional activities. Plot summary: In the fall of 1978 at the peak of the revolution an agent named Armani from the National Intelligence and Security Organization (SAVAK) [Saeed Rad] marries a girl named Lale [Farimah Farjami] who knows nothing about his occupation. A series of strange events on the eve of the wedding and the absence of the SAVAK make the girl suspicious, angry and afraid and cause her to investigate; the next morning they have a heated, violent confrontation that ends when she shoots him with his pistol.
