Fajr-winning ‘Butterfly Stroke’ has been selected to start post-corona public screenings in Iran.
The movie is scheduled to be one of the movies that will hit Iran silver screen on June 21, 2020 following the home period due to COVID-19.
Directed by Mohammad Kart, ‘Butterfly Stroke’ narrates the story of some ostracized people from the poverty-stricken neighborhoods in Tehran.
The people have to pretend to be strong if they want to survive the brutality of their environment.
Some top-rating Iranian actors such as Mohammad-Javad Ezzati, Tannaz Tabatabaee, Mahlaqa Baqeri, Pantea Bahram, Ali Shademan, and Amir Aqaee have starred in the flick.
Iran’s movie theaters will soon resume activities with observing the health protocols and under the condition that just 50 percent of seats would be taken by the audiences.
Using face masks and gloves, broadcasting coronavirus-related trailers prior to screening the movies and performances, considering seat separation policy and preparing liquid soap and sterilizers are among the health protocols.
Also using thermometer to identify the infected people and preventing them from entering the halls will be required.
The entire art and cultural activities, including public screenings in movie theaters have been halted across Iran since this February due to the coronavirus pandemic.
