Iranian film ‘Orphanage of Iran’ directed by Abolghasem Talebi has been scheduled to go on screen in the Argentine capital city of Buenos Aires.
The film will be screened on July 26, 2017 in an event organized by El Jauretche Study Center in Argentina.
‘Orphanage of Iran’ is a 120-minute historical account of the war crimes committed by British forces against the Iranian people.
The film sheds light on the direct and indirect role of the British government in the mass-killing of nearly half of the Iranian population during the First World War.
During the war, Iran was struck by a drought in the years between 1917 and 1919 after Russian and British forces occupied the Persian lands and mercilessly looted people’s food resources.
The cast of the film includes popular actors such as Aliram Nouraei, Farrokh Nemati, Jafar Dehqan, Bahar Mohammadpour, Ali Shademan and Melika Shaban.
