About the films:

The films are part of a larger body of work titled THREE MARKS, TOO MANY SIGNALS that also includes the 2016 film and visual album CANYON.


MAN (2018) is a verite-style day-in-the-life story about a computer programmer who lives a secluded existence in L.A.'s Laurel Canyon. His sole real-life companions are his two dogs; everyone else--friends, colleagues, family he only connects with through technological mediation; via phones and computers.

MAN (2017)

MAN was a recent recipient of an Outstanding Achievement Award from the Calcutta International Cult Film Festival.

A teaser trailer is available for MAN:

Here is what some are saying about MAN:

"The themes of Man are extremely relevant and poignant as material possession and technological developments conflict with physical, human connection like Jonze's 'Her'... It's exciting to see modern representation of romance... I have not felt so conscious about my interactions and introspective feelings..... in a long time." Timothy Noordermeer - Indie film journalist and critic
"An engrossing little film... there's something deeply honest about it... it paints such an intimate, simple portrait of a day." Matthew Misetich - Senior Executive at Script Pipeline.
"This is fantastic. [Man] achieves a very even, coherent aesthetic, which for something like this is a fine line to walk... specifically how humans are changing because of digital media and technology - the 'always connected' network... I am very impressed". Chad Davis, Digital Producer, Northwestern University.

Three Worlds

Three Worlds (2018) is a psychological science fiction drama that explores the three lives, or worlds, of a man who undergoes an experiment that triggers haunting memories and alternate life memories.

Three Worlds (2018)

Trailer for Three Worlds will be available in late March.

Amir Motlagh is the lead actor and the director of both MAN and Three Worlds.
