Tehran, Jan 6, IRNA – Iranian movie ‘Hot Summer’ attended Dhaka International Film Festival in Bangladesh and the movie ‘Breath’ entered Mill Valley Film Festival.

‘Hot Summer’ directed by Ebrahim Irajzad is being screened in the Asian section of Dhaka International Film Festival.

“The film is about Nasrin whose domestic life is suffering miseries. She knows getting custody of her daughter in case of divorce is next to impossible. Therefore, she secretly takes the little girl with her to an unknown location somewhere in Tehran. Her husband finds them, though,” according to ifilmtv website.

The 13th Dhaka International Film Festival is scheduled to be held on Jan 12-20 in Bangladesh.

The Mill Valley Film Festival is an annual American film festival founded in 1977.

Breath is a 2016 Iranian film directed by Narges Abyar. It was selected as the Iranian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards, but it was not nominated.

Little Bahar lives a life spun from folklore and stories, always with her head in a book. But growing up in Yazd in the 1970s and ’80s, she’s at the centre of a country in turmoil: the Shah is overthrown, Ayatollah Khomeini rises to power, and the first shots are fired in a bitter and protracted war with Iraq. Over the span of several years, Bahar finds daydreaming in her own fantasy world is the only way she can make sense of the pain and suffering warring humans inflict on one another.
