March 15, 2019

TEHRAN – “Triumph” and “Water Lilies of Monet - the Magic of Water and Light” will go on screen in Docs in Focus, a section dedicated to documentary cinema, at the 37th Fajr International Film Festival, the organizers announced on Friday. 

Co-directed by Kreshnik Jonuzi, Luftar Von Rama and Charlie Askew, “Triumph” centers on the football match between the Albanian and Serbian national teams during the EURO cup in 2014, which ended abruptly when Serbian fans attacked Albanian players in the middle of the match.

Produced in 2017, the documentary shows the history of political tensions, war and genocide following the Albanian National Team to their first EURO cup appearance. 

“Water Lilies of Monet” directed by Giovanni Troilo from Italy provides a deep insight into the works and personal obsessions of the genius of Impressionism, Claude Monet. 

The 2018 film focuses on Monet’s “Water Lilies”, a series of approximately 250 oil paintings. 

The 37th Fajr International Film Festival will be held in Tehran from April 18 to 26.
