The real-life drama has recently registered for the 39th edition of the cinematic event.
In the movie directed by Ali Ghaffari, Dirbaz stars as the main character, the real-life hero, martyr Abdulrasul Zarrin.
Previously dubbed as ‘Hunting of the Hunter’, the movie is about Zarrin, who was known for his pinpoint accuracy.
He inflicted heavy casualties on the Iraqi forces during an imposed war waged by Iraq’s former dictator Saddam Hussein and supported by some Western and regional states.
The FFF coincides with the Ten-Day Fajr ceremonies across Iran, marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Since its establishment in 1982, the FFF has played a vital role in the development of Iranian Cinema.
Supervised by Iran’s Ministry of Culture, the festival hosts veteran directors and new filmmakers from Iran every year.
