Iranian feature ‘Walnut Tree’ has released its official trailer prior to its premiere at the 38th edition of the Fajr Film Festival.
The film is award-winning director Mohammad-Hossein Mahdavian’s latest project following the blockbuster success of his previous film ‘Midday Adventures: Trace of Blood’.
Based on a true story, ‘Walnut Tree’ brings to life the horrific story of the chemical weapon attacks on northwestern Iran by the former US-backed regime of Saddam Hussein.
The film’s caption reads, “It might be time for everyone to be informed about this story; a story that began next to this Walnut Tree”.
Peyman Maadi, Mehran Modiri, and Mina Sadati are among the film’s cast.
Produced by Seyyed-Mostafa Ahmadi, the film was written by Ebrahim Amini and Hossein Hassani.
