This is first time an Iranian film will be released in Blu-ray Disc format, the director of Public Relations Office of Cinema 24, Hassan Haj-Beigi, told the Persian Service of FNA on Friday.
“This format requires high-tech facilities, which are not available in our country,” he added.
The home video copy of “Che” will contain unseen backstage scenes along with several short documentaries.
He also said that the film will have five different language subtitles: Persian (useful for hearing impaired individuals), Arabic, Spanish, English and Turkish.
The Blu-ray format of the film is scheduled to be released after the holy month of Ramadan.
“Che”, which is about the Iranian war hero Mostafa Chamran, premiered at York Cinemas in Toronto on Friday.
“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.
