Filmography   

filmmaker's note
The character of 'hangman' has been present in the movies for at least one hundred years. They have been shown as cruel and sometimes disgusting people who execute for the sake of execution. Now it seems to be interesting to narrate the story of a hangman from his/her viewpoint. 'Hanged' is the story of a 40-year-old girl, named Parvaneh, who weighs 300 pounds and executes women in today's Iran.
