This article provides a detailed analysis of Suhrāb Shahīd Sālis’s debut film, A Simple Event, focusing on the themes of silence, duration (la durée), and minimalism. The article also draws parallels between recurring motifs in the film, such as daily routines and repetition, and the works of Albert Camus, particularly The Myth of Sisyphus and The Stranger. Additionally, it offers a brief exploration of the historical context surrounding the film’s production and Shahīd Sālis’s background.
