June 30, 2015

TEHRAN – Five Iranians movies will go on screen in a section that the 8th Revelation Perth International Film Festival (RPIFF) in Australia has dedicated to Iranian cinema.

The films are “The Painting Pool”, “The Paternal House”, “I’m Not Angry”, “Fish and Cat” and “Kami’s Party”.

“The Painting Pool” directed by Maziar Miri tells the story of a young mentally challenged couple, Maryam and Reza, who work in the packaging department of a pharmaceutical company.

“The Paternal House” by Kianush Ayyari is about a young woman who is killed by her own father, with the aid of her younger brother nearly a century ago.

The second film from writer-director Reza Dormishian, “I’m Not Angry”, is a love story about Setareh and Navid who meet at a university and participate in political rallies together.

Shahram Mokri’s acclaimed psychodrama “Fish and Cat” shows a number of students who have travelled to the Caspian region where bizarre events lead to a complicated situation.

And finally, Ali Ahmadzadeh’s debut film “Kami’s Party” is a true road movie with sinister undertones, which gives a snapshot of the lives of some young rich Iranians.

A lineup of Polish films will also be screened in a special section at the Revelation Perth International Film Festival, which will be held in North Perth from July 2 to 12.
