Iran film ‘Mahoora’ has been scheduled to be screened at the 71st edition of Cannes Film Festival in France.
Directed by Hamid Zargarnejad, the movie was produced based on a four-year research project. That’s why the film crew selected a wetland at the Iranian southwest province of Khuzestan as the location of the flick.
The technical stage for ‘Mahoora’ took more than a year.
The movie went on the silver screen at the 36th edition of the Fajr Film Festival.
The film depicts the story of a border village in Iran where people have a strange local custom.
‘Mahoora’ features popular Iranian actors such as Kamran Tafti, Bahareh Kian-Afshar, Dariush Arjmand, Saeed Aqakhani, Mitra Hajjar, Ali Osivand and Yousef Moradian.
