The movie 'Kupal' has been scheduled to be screened at the second edition of the Wisconsin Iranian Film Festival in the US.
“You cannot be alone in the world,” the film director, Kazem Molaei, noted giving a clue to the philosophical origin of the film, adding “The world is a strange place. Here, whoever shoots is the one who gets killed.”
Notable cast members of the film include Levon Haftvan, Nazanin Farahani, Pouria Rahimi-Sam, Hossein Shamsabadi, Vahan Salimzadeh and Mitra Asiaee.
Founded in 2017, the Wisconsin Iranian Film Festival has been set up by UW-Madison graduate student Hamidreza Nassiri to create a cultural dialogue through works of art, and in its second edition, it will showcase the best films of Iranian cinema.
The event is funded in part by ASM (Associated Students of Madison) and other sponsors like UW-Madison’s Middle East Studies Program, Multicultural Student Center, International Student Services (Global Badger Experience Grant), and Center for Leadership and Involvement (Wisconsin Experience Grant), and WUD Global Connections.
The 2018 edition of the event is slated for February 17-25.
