The Olympia Film Festival in Greece is slated to host ‘Copper Notes of a Dream’.
In its latest international appearance, Reza Farahmand’s ‘Copper Notes of a Dream’ will represent Iran at the 22nd edition of the event.
The doc is competing for Harrell Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Greek event.
Produced by Morteza Shabani, the documentary narrates the story of a group of children (ten-year-old Molouk and his friends) who collect the copper wires of a war-torn area to make money.
In a moving scene of the doc, the children write notes on the walls to apologize for their theft in case the people who have fled the war ever return.
Marking its first international presence, the doc was screened at the 30th Semaine de la critique (Critic’s Week), an independent section organized by the Swiss Association of Film Journalists in cooperation with the Locarno Film Festival.
ArtHouse Cinematheque is responsible for the international distribution of the documentary.
The 22nd edition of the Olympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People will be held in the capital Athens on November 30 – December 7, 2019.
