Director Abbas Amini’s ‘Slaughterhouse’ has released the film’s official trailer following the completion of the technical stages.
Produced by Javad Norouzbeigi, the film is set to premiere at the 38th edition of the Fajr Film Festival.
The film will be competing for the festival’s ‘New Look’ awards for first-time directors.
Written by Amini and Hossein Farrokhzadeh, the 125-minute feature is a drama with notes of horror and suspense.
Starring in the film are Amir-Hossein Fathi, Mani Haqiqi, Hassan Pourshirazi, and Baran Kosari, among others.
The Fajr Film Festival coincides with the Ten-Day Fajr (Dawn) ceremonies across Iran, marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Since its establishment in 1982, the Fajr Film Festival has played a vital role in the development of Iranian Cinema.
Supervised by Iran’s Ministry of Culture, the festival hosts veteran directors along with up and coming filmmakers from Iran every year.
The 38th edition of the event is set to launch on February 1, 2020 and will run until February 11 in Tehran.
An international version of the event is also set to be held in April 2020.
