Iranian movie ‘Orange Days’ has grabbed an award at the Pyongyang International Film Festival in North Korea.
The film directed by Arash Lahouti, won the Grand Prix at the closing ceremony of the event.
The 17th edition of the North Korean festival wrapped up on Friday in the presence of Iranian cultural figures.
The 102-minute feature tells the story of Aban, the only female contractor in the cutthroat and male-dominated orange harvesting industry, who enters a competition to win a large contract. Her efforts remain futile while anyone involved in her story tries to fail her.
Hediyeh Tehrani, Ali Mosaffa, Mehran Ahmadi, Alireza Ostadi, Zhila Shahi, Sadaf Asgari, Roya Hosseini, Amin Golestaneh, Akram Alamdar, and Leili Farhadpour are among the cast members of the flick.
The Pyongyang International Film Festival is a biennial cultural exhibition held in Pyongyang, North Korea. The film festival is a very cosmopolitan event, especially in the more recent years.
