ifilm is scheduled to analyze Iranian movie ‘Boarding Pass’ in an exclusive show.
Directed by Mehdi Rahmani, the movie will be reviewed in this week’s edition of ‘Cinema ifilm’.
‘Boarding Pass’ is about body packers that swallow pre-packaged drugs willfully or under duress to transfer them across the borders. They usually carry opium, heroin, cocaine or amphetamine sealed in layers of plastic wrap in their stomachs for smuggling.
The story begins when a package is not sealed properly and starts leaking in the stomach of a body packer. Then the dying process starts with dilated pupils, slower breathing, ruptured intestines, and finally heart failure.
Mansour Shahbazi, Neda Jebraili, Mohammad-Ali Najafi, Asghar Rafie-Jam, and Shirin Yazdanbakhsh are notable among the cast of the 88-minute movie.
The title has made it to the official selection of 33rd Warsaw International Film Festival in 2017.
