Iran’s short film ‘Goodbye Olympic’, directed by Mojtaba Pourbakhshi, is set to participate at Triste Para Sempre (Sad Forever) film festival in Portugal.
“Maria is a champion of kayak waiting to leave for the race, held in France, for the Olympic qualification. The departure of the kayaking team will be canceled due to the emergence of various problems,” a synopsis for the film reads.
