Produced and directed by Ali Atshani, ‘Selfie with Democracy’ is a movie about war veterans and martyrs of 8 years of US-backed war on Iran known as the Sacred Defense.
Kourosh Tahami, Sima Tirandaz, Amir-Abbas Golab, Qasem Zare, Poulad Kimiaee, Mehran Rajabi, Pejman Bazeghi and Atila Pesyani make the cast members of Atshani’s latest production.
The movie has previously participated in several international film festivals including the 2020 edition of the Southeast Regional Film Festival in the US and the 2020 edition of the Iranian Film Festival (IFF) - San Francisco in the US.
According to the Lift-Off Sessions’ official website, “it isn't about selecting the best possible shorts or features from the films that are submitted to us, it is about providing a screening opportunity for everyone. An opportunity we hope highlights and educates each and every month”.
The festival will start from January 28 and run for a week.
