South Korea and Japan are set to screen Iranian feature 'Damascus Time', made in three international languages, this summer.
The film's international screening rights have been acquired by a number of countries, including South Korea and Japan.
Ebrahim Hatamikia’s ‘Damascus Time’ focuses on security threats by terrorists when an Iranian plane, conveying humanitarian aid to Syria, is challenged in Damascus Airport.
Popular Iranian actors such as Babak Hamidiyan and Hadi Hejazifar as well as a number of actors from Syria and Lebanon star in the movie.
‘Damascus Time’ has recently managed to grab some awards, including Crystal Simorghs for Best Director and Best Music Composition, at the latest edition of the Fajr Film Festival in Iran.
The film which went on the local screen some days prior to the Iranian New Year or Nowruz has sold USD 3 million-plus.
