Reza Majlesi’s sci-fi film ‘Kati and Setareh’ is set to compete at the 17th annual Dhaka International Film Festival (DIFF) in Bangladesh.
A children’s sci-fi film, ‘Kati and Setareh’ is the story of an alien, ‘Kati’, travelling to planet earth to find fellow alien friend ‘Kooty’, who recently traveled to earth in search of the most beautiful thing ever, but has yet to find it.
Landing his spaceship somewhere in Iran’s northern Gilan province, ‘Kati’ meets a local girl by the name of ‘Setareh’, and together they embark on a journey to find ‘Kooty’.
Produced by Bita Mansouri, the bulk of the film was shot in northern Iran, with other parts being filmed in Tehran.
