Iranian movie ‘The Warden’ is slated to vie at the International Film Festival of India.
The movie directed by Nima Javidi will represent Iran at the ICFT UNESCO Gandhi Medal section of the event.
‘The Warden’ is to compete with films from India, Germany, Italy, Mexico and the US.
‘The Warden’ narrates the story of a warden who has big hopes of promotion on his head. He has recently been assigned a mission to evacuate the prison and move the inmates into another facility.
Should he be able to accomplish his task to the fullest, he will be rewarded. A prisoner, however, has gone missing which might bring the warden shame and bring down his dreams of promotion.
The 90-minute flick starring Navid Mohammadzadeh, Parinaz Izadyar, Mani Haqiqi and Setareh Pesyani got its premiere at the Fajr Film Festival in Iran where it won the Special Jury Award.
