Iranian movie ‘No Date, No Signature’ is slated to compete at the Asian World Film Festival in US.
Directed by Vahid Jalilvand, the movie is to vie at the competition section of the 4th edition of the event to be held in Los Angeles.
When forensic pathologist Dr. Kaveh Nariman hits a motorbike with his car, he injures the motorcyclist’s 8-year-old son. Although he offers to take the child to a clinic nearby, the father refuses his help and money.
The next morning, in the hospital where he works, Dr. Nariman discovers that the little boy has been brought for an autopsy after a suspicious death.
Another doctor attributes the death to botulism, but Dr. Nariman suspects the accident might be the true — or at least a contributing — cause. The physician faces an ethical decision: Should he reveal his potential culpability?
‘No Date, No Signature’ was premiered at the 35th Fajr Film Festival and received three Crystal Simorgh awards for best director, best actor in a supporting role and best sound mixer.
The Asian World Film Festival (AWFF) brings the best of a broad selection of Asian World cinema to Los Angeles in order to draw greater recognition to the region’s wealth of filmmakers, strengthening ties between the Asian and Hollywood film industries.
The festival is slated for October 24 to November 1, 2018.
