The 2019 edition of the Minsk International Film Festival “Listapad” in Belarus has been screening Iran’s ‘A Hairy Tale’.
According to media reports, the film is competing at the 26th “Listapad”, marking its second international appearance.
‘A Hairy Tale’ won the Special Jury Award at the 35th Warsaw International Film Festival in Poland.
The film is about three barbers with different tastes, each passionate about his own interests.
“Danesh is in love with cinema and Homa, a well-known actress. Khan is mad about the movie ‘Casablanca’ and his barber shop’s certificate. Shapour will give anything for tinned tuna and politics.
The atmosphere in the city becomes oppressive. Could an earthquake be coming? Every now and then the body of a dead woman is found near the sea. All of their heads are shaved. As Inspector Kiani says, it’s a messy situation,” a synopsis for the film reads.
The cast of the film includes many prominent stars such as Ali Nasiriyan, Saber Abar, Babak Hamidiyan, Reza Kianian, and Hediyeh Tehrani.
The Minsk International Film Festival “Listapad” is “the biggest and high-status cinema event in Belarus,” according to the festival’s website.
The festival kicked off on November 1 and is set to come to an end on November 8, 2019.
