Manijeh Hekmat’s latest directorial project has made its way to the 26th edition of the Indian event.
‘Bandar Band’ is about pregnant Mahla along with the other members of a music band named Bandar Band, her husband and one of their closest friends. They start their journey to Tehran from a southern province just when they have lost all they had in a flood.
They still keep their hopes alive, however, every road they take leads to a dead-end in a flood-stricken land. They intend to go to Tehran, but they wonder if it is just another turn around a vicious circle.
The KIFF is one of the oldest and most valid festivals in India. The fest aims at creating an opportunity for a better understanding of international films and to promote motion picture art and industry.
The 2021 edition of the event has kicked off on January 8 and will go on until January 15.
