Iran’s ‘Yalda’ to be screened in four int’l festivals

Tehran, March 7, IRNA - Iranian Movie 'Yalda' directed by Massoud Bakhshi is scheduled to be screened in four international festivals.

Yelda will be screened in Geneva International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH), Luxembourg Fest 2020, 2020 Sofia International Film Festival and festival on Middle East cinema in Paris.

Yalda film by Massoud Bakhshi displays the story of a 26 years old woman who’s been sentenced to death for having murdered her rich 65-year-old husband. She is invited to the most popular live TV reality show in Iran to be possibly forgiven by the only daughter of the victim.

The story narrates the struggle of the female characters against a patriarchal system. It is also a film about retribution.

The Iranian movie had earlier won award in 2020 Sundance Film Festival which was held in Park City, Utah, US, on January 23- February 2.

It relishes privilege of mercy compared to cold-blood retribution.
