Iranian film ‘A Hairy Tale’ on screen in Taiwanese fest

The 2020 Taipei Golden Horse filmfest in Taiwan is screening Iranian feature ‘A Hairy Tale’.

The 57th edition of the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival (TGHFF) in Taiwan has been screening Iranian feature ‘A Hairy Tale’.

Produced by Ali Mosaffa and written and directed by Homayoun Ghanizadeh, the feature film is about three barbers with different tastes, each passionate about his own interests.

“Danesh is in love with cinema and Homa, a well-known actress. Kazem Khan is mad about the movie ‘Casablanca’ and his barber shop’s certificate. Shapour will give anything for tinned tuna and politics.

The atmosphere in the city becomes oppressive. Could an earthquake be coming? Every now and then the body of a dead woman is found near the sea. All of their heads are shaved. As Inspector Kiani says, it’s a messy situation,” a synopsis for the film reads.

The cast of the film includes prominent stars such as Ali Nasiriyan, Saber Abar, Babak Hamidiyan, Reza Kianian, and Hediyeh Tehrani.

The movie has gone on screen at a number of global events, including the Minsk International Film Festival “Listapad” in Belarus and the 35th Warsaw International Film Festival in Poland, where it won the Special Jury Award.

Starting in 1980, the TGHFF is the largest film festival in Taiwan. The festival focuses on the theme of fantasy to lead the audience go beyond the boundaries of imagination.

The 2020 edition of the event started on November 5 and is undergoing until November 22.
