Mahmoudi Brothers’ latest offering ‘7.5’ to premiere at the 24th annual Busan International Film Festival in South Korea.
Written and directed by Navid Mahmoudi and produced by Jamshid Mahmoudi, the filmmaking duo’s latest flick is considered a film which stands out compared to their previous projects, according to a press release.
‘7.5’ tells the story of seven Afghan and Iranian women in seven episodes in the form of a sequence shot. While all of the women are getting married on the same Friday night, each of them are dealing with certain issues.
The film will mark the Mahmoudi Brothers’ fourth appearance at the Busan International Film Festival, considered to be one of the world’s A-list film festivals.
Prior to this, the filmmaking duo were awarded three times at the Busan International Film Festival for their films ‘A Few Cubic Meters of Love’, ‘Parting’, and ‘Rona, Azim’s Mother’ including the festival’s Best Director for ‘Parting’ and Best Film for ‘Rona, Azim’s Mother’.
The Mahmoudis’ previous three films were also nominated for the Academy Awards’ Best Non-English Film awards, representing the Afghan film industry at the event.
Founded in 1996, the Busan International Film Festival is one of the most significant film festivals in Asia which will be held October 3-12, 2019.
