Mohammad-Reza Mesbah said summer would be the most appropriate season for the public screening of ‘Skin’.
“We have already signed contracts with some foreign film distributors, and are currently in negotiations with some Iranian distributors that during the Fajr Film Festival voiced interest to screen the film,” he added.
Mesbah also noted that “I hope this kind of cinema which tries to distance itself from the normal genres will be noticed more and welcomed by the Iranian cinemagoers”.
Bahman and Bahram Ark's feature mixes romance and fantasy genres.
‘Skin’ narrates the story of a mother and her son who have faced a problem in life. The family is involved in some magic and superstitions. The film is said to contain elements of the horror genre.
Having a different and personal atmosphere while trying to tackle unconventional issues, Ark brothers’ movie has not featured any well-known names and stars. The film is said to offer new suggestions for the future of Iranian cinema.
Ark brothers have already made an award-winning short film titled ‘AniMal’ which is the story of a man who is trying to illegally cross the border. The man chooses to camouflage inside a dead animals skin.
Premiered at the 38th Fajr Film Festival in Iran, the flick received the festival’s Crystal Simorgh for Best Film of Vision of Art and Experience.
