July 4, 2018

TEHRAN – Kazem Mollai’s drama “Kupal” and Javad Darai’s acclaimed short film “Limit”, both from Iran, are competing in the 16th Ischia Film Festival now underway on the Italian volcanic island, the organizers have announced.  

Starring Levon Haftvan who died of a heart attack in March, “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.

“Limit” tells the story of a desperate man who frantically pleads with strangers to accompany him to his home, without being clear on his intentions.

The two Iranian films are competing with films from Russia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Canada and several others.

The winners will be announced on Saturday.
