TEHRAN -- Iranian director Ebrahim Hatamikia’s acclaimed film “Che”, which is about the Iranian war hero Mostafa Chamran, will be screened at York Cinemas in Toronto on July 4.
 
Hatamikia and his film’s star Merila Zarei have been invited to the first screening of the film, the Persian service of ISNA reported on Tuesday.
 
The film will be on screen for two weeks in the Canadian city.
 
The screenings have been organized by Laperse Entertainment, an international company that screens Iranian movies in all over Canada, USA and Malaysia.
 
“Che” depicts 48 hours of Chamran’s life on August 16 and 17, 1979 when he entered Paveh, a town in the western Iranian province of Kermanshah, to join the Iranian forces fighting against separatist Kurds.
 
Chamran was commander of several military operations in the warzones of Kordestan and Khuzestan regions during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war. He was killed in a mortar attack in the Dehlavieh region near Ahvaz in 1981.
 
He had completed his Ph.D. in electronics and plasma physics with excellent grades from the University of California at Berkeley.
