Iranian feature ‘Orange Days’ has been scheduled to go on screen at the 16th edition of the Chennai International Film Festival (CIFF) in India.
The 102-minute Iranian feature will go on screen at the World Cinema section of the Indian event in Casino Theater on December 19.
Directed by Arash Lahouti, ‘Orange Days’ tells the story of Aban, the only female contractor in the cutthroat and male-dominated orange harvesting industry, who enters a competition to win a large contract. Her efforts remain futile while anyone involved in her story tries to fail her.
A number of Iranian superstars, including Tehrani, Mosaffa and Mehran Ahmadi are among the cast members of the flick.
It has gone on screen at some international events, including the 14th Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland, the 18th Calgary International Film Festival in Canada, the 43rd Toronto International Film Festival in Canada, the 42nd São Paulo International Film Festival in Brazil, the 2018 Torun International Film Festival (TOFIFEST) in Poland, the 2018 MedFilm Festival in Italy, and the 8th Malatya International Film Festival in Turkey.
