TEHRAN – Iranian director Soheil Abdollahi has shot his debut feature-film “24 Hours” on location in Thailand and Cambodia.

The postproduction stage of the film is being completed in Iran, he told the Persian service of MNA on Sunday.

He called his “24 Hours” a horror movie whose story is set in Japan’s Suicide Forest. Kimia Madani, an Iranian psychologist who is famous for his treatment of people with masochism, travels to Japan to carry out a study about the Suicide Forest.

The film stars a cast of unknown actors, including Mahya Dehqani, Amir-Ali Suri, Mehdi Sediqi, Sepideh Beirami, and Anita Ramezanpur.

“Using a cast of unknown actors is the key to make a good horror film so I did that in this project,” said Abdollahi.

The film was produced at Abdollahi’s Istanbul-based studio Rastak Film.

He is seeking to receive official authorization from Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance to premiere the movie at the Fajr Film Festival, which will be held in Tehran during February 2019.
