TEHRAN -- The Iranian social drama “I’m Not Angry!” has won prizes at the 17th Shanghai International Film Festival.
The film received the Asian New Talent Award for Best Film and Reza Dormishian was presented with the Best Director Award for the movie.
He also shared the Vincent Ward Prize, which is sponsored by the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, with the Indian director Indranil Roychowdhury for “Dragon Fly”.
“I made this film with a love for Iran and the people of my country,” Dormishian said in his acceptance speech during the closing ceremony of the festival on Friday.
“I wish a world full of love and love and love, in which there would not be any war and nobody would be angry with someone else,” he added
“I’m Not Angry!” tells the story of Navid, a young man whose university studies are disrupted because of his activities and beliefs. He tries to deal with all the injustices and suffering, and he maintains a very basic living style while trying not to lose his love Setareh.
Baran Kowsari, Navid Mohammadzadeh, Reza Behbudi, Misaq Zare and Bahram Afshari are the main members of the cast for the film, which is Dormishian’s second feature.
He made his debut film “Hatred” about the life of an Iranian couple after their immigration. This film was screened at many international events.
The celebrated Iranian actor/director/writer Peyman Moadi was on the international jury of the Shanghai festival.
