February 2, 2018

TEHRAN – Hadi Hejazifar, a leading actor in the acclaimed Iranian dramas “Standing in the Dust” and “The Midday Event”, has said that he is not satisfied his performance in his latest movie, “At Damascus Time” directed by Ebrahim Hatamikia.

He made the remarks in an interview on Cinema 2, a TV program, on Thursday after a screening of the film at the 36th Fajr Film Festival.

In “At Damascus Time”, Hejazifar portrays an Iranian pilot who, along with his son as copilot, is seized by Daesh forces in Syria.

Hejazifar and Babak Hamidian are the sole Iranian actors of the cast, which is composed of a number of Syrian and Iraqi actors.  

“The film is a good one with moments, which I believe we will see for the first time in Iranian cinema. I see Babak; I see the other actors. I like the entire film but I don’t like my performance; I am saying this honestly,” he said.

“You know my main interest is directing, I have learned a lot from Hatamikia. He has a good command of his work and over everything and the cast and crew,” he added.

“I must admit it was one of my wishes that came true to work with Hatamikia. We lived for four months together and to me the complete satisfaction of the director is the main thing,” he added.
