A Fajr contestant, ‘Midday Adventures: Blood Trap’ by Mohammad-Hossein Mahdavian, has unveiled new image featuring ifilm star Behnoush Tabatabaee.
The revealed image of ‘Michael’ star shows her in despair. Her makeup for the movie suggests she has a different role being all scruffy and distressed.
This is the second time ever that Tabatabaee has appeared in a period drama movie after ‘Cyanide’ directed by Behrouz Shoeibi.
Behnoush started her artistic journey as an actor taking a role in ‘Damoon Alley’, (1999). Since then, she has been in various films and TV series; some of which have been aired by ifilm such as ‘A Passenger from India’.
The new flick is a sequel to Mahdavian’s political drama ‘Midday Adventures’ and follows its story which has portrayed the terrorist atrocities of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization in Iran during the 1980s.
Among many awards and nominations it gained, the first sequel of the film won best film award from the 35th edition of the Fajr Film Festival.
This second sequel to ‘Midday Adventures’ which has been produced by Cimaye Mehr Cinema Company will premiere at the 37th Fajr Film Festival.
