TEHRAN -- Six Iranian films will be reviewed during a weeklong program at the House of Cinema (Casa del Cinema) in Rome next week.
“Facing Mirrors” directed by Negar Azarbaijani, “Gold and Copper” by Homayun Asadian, “Saadatabad” Maziar Miri, “Fireworks Wednesday” by Asghar Farhadi, “Here without Me” by Bahram Tavakkoli, and “Mr. Yusef” by Ali Rafiei will be screened during the program, “Facing Mirrors” producer Fereshteh Taerpur told the Persian service of ISNA on Tuesday.
The program will begin with the screening of “Facing Mirrors”, a film on the transgender issue, on February 26. Taerpur is scheduled to deliver a speech at the opening ceremony of the program.
“It is an ideal opportunity to watch ‘Facing Mirrors’ with Italian filmgoers,” Taerpur said.
“Experiencing the hospitality of Rome’s House of Cinema, becoming familiar with the institute, and comparing it with the Iranian House of Cinema will be great outcomes of my trip to Rome,” she stated.
“The international film festivals, which are organized in Italy every year, screen some Iranian movies that usually win awards. These events have kept open the windows of cultural relations between Italy and Iran,” Taerpur added.
