TEHRAN – Majid Gorjian has won the award for best cinematographer at the 3rd Realtime International Film Festival in Nigeria for his collaboration on Iranian director Kazem Mollai’s acclaimed drama “Kupal”, the organizers announced on Sunday.  

Starring Levon Haftvan, who died of a heart attack in March 2018, the film has won numerous international awards.

“Kupal” tells the story of a hunter and a taxidermist called “Dr. Ahmad Kupal”. On the last day of the year, just moments before the arrival of the New Year, he faces an unexpected challenge.

“The Forbidden” by Nampala Claire from Hong Kong was named best film, while Marco Santi from Italy was picked as best director for “Professor D” at the event, which took place in the Nigerian city of Lagos from June 24 to July 1.
