Iran’s actor Navid Mohammadzadeh has been awarded at the 2018 edition of Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia.
Mohammadzadeh grabbed the best actor award at the 22nd Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival for his role in the movie ‘Sheeple’.
He shared the prize with the Danish actor Dar Salim.
Directed by Houman Seyyedi, ‘Sheeple’ is about Shahin, a loud-mouthed fellow adopted years ago, who tries to establish his authority in a family run by the iron hand of his drug lord brother.
“Two brothers are running and making Crystal meth in a hidden laboratory in middle of nowhere of an urban jungle and they do care for the honor of their neighborhood. All of a sudden a mobile footage on their sister is spreading everywhere and this causes some strange incidents,” a short synopsis of the flick reads.
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) "has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in Northern Europe and busiest regional industry platforms, hosting more than 1000 guests and industry delegates and over 160 journalists," the event’s official website reads.
The festival screens around 250 features and more than 300 shorts and animations and sees an attendance of 80,000 people annually, it added.
The 22nd edition of the festival kicked off on November 16 and wrapped up in Estonia on December 2.
