|Iran’s “Bear” receives two nominations at Asia Pacific Screen Awards||
Masumi and producer Javad Noruzbeigi will compete for best director and best film awards.
The award-winning film is about Nureddin, a person missing in action and declared a martyr, who comes home after eight years as a prisoner of war.
He finds his wife remarried and the mother of two children. Longing for nothing more than a simple family life with his wife, Nureddin struggles to fight reality.
“Bear” won a Golden Goblet Award for best film at the 15th Shanghai International Film Festival on Sunday.
Starring Parviz Parastuii, Merila Zarei and Farhad Aslani, the film has also won two Crystal Simorghs at the 30th Fajr International Film Festival.
The winners of the 2012 APSA will be announced at a ceremony in Brisbane, Australia, on November 23.
The Iranian Oscar-winning movie “A Separation” was named the Best Feature Film at the APSA last year.
