The binational production by Mahmoudi Brothers is to compete with 16 other films from around the world at the NETPAC section of the event.
‘Seven and a Half’ will have screening sessions on November 6 during the 2020 edition of the Spanish festival.
‘Seven and a Half’ narrates the story of seven Iranian and Afghan girls about to get married on a Friday night. All of the young women are engaged otherwise, though.
The film, shot in a long take, will follow the girls’ challenges before they’ll tie the knot.
Neda Jabraeeli, Shadi Mokhtari, Atieh Javid, Hasti Mahdavifar, Mohammad-Reza Ghaffari, Anahita Afshar, Alireza Kamalinejad, Fereshteh Hosseini, Hossein Mehri, Roya Javidnia, Hanieh Qasemi, Afsaneh Kamali, and Matin Heydarinia are some of the cast members.
