The 22nd edition of the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia has set to screen Iranian feature ‘Kejal’.
Directed by Nima Yar, ‘Kejal’ is about a young university student who takes the hard way to look after her mother and brother.
“Kejal pictures the power of one’s belief and the possibility that there is always a solution and hope in any aspect of our life. Many people do not want to be into politics, therefore, many policies are not humane,” the director said about his film.
The film cast includes Maryam Boubani, Nastaran Mohammadi and Samira Zokaee who portrays the female lead.
Started in 1997, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in Northern Europe and busiest regional industry platforms, hosting more than 1000 guests and industry delegates and around 120 journalists, the official website of the event wrote.
The festival screens around 250 features and more than 300 shorts and animations and sees an attendance of 80 000 people annually.
The 22nd edition of the festival is slated for November 16–December 2, 2018.
