|Five new films to hit Iranian theaters during Noruz holidays||
The films are “The Rule of Accident”, “The Painting Pool”, “Scandal”, “Mr. Alef” and “Tehran 2121”.
Directed by Behnam Behzadi, the film “The Rule of Accident” is about the relationship between the members of a theater troupe, which is rehearsing for a play, and their parents.
It won the Crystal Simorgh for best film in the international section of the 31st Fajr International Film Festival in Tehran in February.
Director Maziar Miri’s “The Painting Pool” is about physically challenged parents who face a problem with their only son.
The film and Puran Derakhshandeh’s social drama “Hush… Girls Don’t Scream” also shared the Crystal Simorgh for Audience Favorite Film at the Fajr festival.
Iran’s first 3D film “Mr. Alef” tells the story of Mr. Adib, a columnist who learns that he will die a few days later.
The comedy drama premiered at Fajr, but, despite its director Ali Atashani’s expectations, it did not win acclaim at the event.
“Scandal” is Masud Dehnamaki’s latest film, which, he believes challenges Iran’s official view on Muslim clerics.
It is about Haji Yusef, a cleric living among the ordinary people in a poor district of Tehran. He meets Afsaneh, an infamous woman, who is on the verge of complete moral corruption. Haji Yusef decides to help Afsaneh, but he faces some problems.
The film only brought Amir Eskandari a Crystal Simorgh for best makeup artist at Fajr.
“Tehran 2121”, an animated film by director Bahram Azimi, is about the past and present of a 160-year-old man.
The story of this animation takes place in the year 2121, when robots live along with people who live for over 160 years due to progress in medical science.
Using the rotoscoping technique, Azimi made the animation with an all-star cast.
Rotoscoping is an animation technique in which animators trace over live-action film movement, frame by frame, for use in animated films.
