Iranian feature ‘The Dark Room’ has been scheduled to attend the Yari Iranian Film Festival in Sweden.
Directed by Rouhollah Hejazi, the social drama will be competing at the International Competition section of the event.
The film narrates the story of a young couple, Haleh and Farhad, and their 5-year-old son, Amir.
The small family has recently moved into a new apartment building to start a new chapter of their lives; they cannot imagine what awaits them, though.
Amir is lost in the desert just in front of the complex, however, his parents find him soon. But then, Amir tells his father that someone has abused him and that makes Farhad very upset.
The troubled father is now looking for a suspect who has harassed his little boy.
Notable among the cast members of the flick are Sareh Bayat and Saed Soheili. Alireza Mirsalehi is the child star who plays the role of the family’s only child.
‘The Dark Room’ has so far attended several international film events, including the 23rd International Film Festival of Kerala in India.
The Yari is organized every year by Yari, an Uppsala-based charity organization that helps street children in Iran to go to school and also raises funds for the construction of schools and libraries for children.
The 19th edition of the Yari is slated for October 12-13, 2019.
