'The Fateful Day', hailed as "the most notable film" on Ashura is set to be re-screened at Iranian theater after more than two decades.
Sajjad Norouzi, head of the Tehran Azadi Cineplex, broke the news to the local media, adding following talks with director Shahram Asadi on the possibility of public screening of his valuable work, he eagerly accepted the offer.
He noted that Iran Screening Guild Council has already issued the re-screening permit, adding the flick will be screened during the Muslim mourning month of Muharram.
The notable Iranian movie made in the 1990s is themed on Ashura when the third Muslim Imam, Imam Hussein (AS), was martyred.
This film has been lauded for the storyline and great acting with a review describing it as "the most notable film" made a few decades ago on the sad religious occasion of Ashura.
The title which grabbed the best film award at Fajr Film Festival in Iran boasts a string of stars with the likes of Alireza Shoja-Nouri as the male lead or late-great actor Ezzatollah Entezami.
Shoja-Nouri played the role of a new Muslim convert hearing a voice that calls for help. He goes from desert to desert in search of Imam Hussein (AS) to put his doubts to rest.
