Iranian female director to make movies in China

Tehran, IRNA - Iranian film-maker Narges Abyar is going to make a movie called "Chang'an, Chang'an" in collaboration with two Chinese directors in Xian city, north-central China.

According to China Radio International, Abyar will make the movie on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the announcement of the One Belt, One Road Initiative in the southeastern Asian country.
In an interview with China Radio International, she stressed that the film would narrate the story of the China-Europe railway in the ancient city of Chang'an. It is expected that the "Chang'an, Chang'an" will be screened in 2022.
The Iranian director has been named an honorary professor at Xian Jiaotong University in China.
Abyar told the radio that the "Chang'an, Chang'an" is a movie on the Silk Road, adding that she realized there are people in some parts of China such as Xinjiang, who use words, having their roots from Iran.
The One Belt, One Road will bring several nations closer, she said, adding that Iran, an important country in the ancient Silk Road, will be mentioned in the movie as well.
A deep understanding of human-being is outlined in the screenplay, the director said, expressing hope that she and other directors be able to produce an outstanding movie.
"Chang'an, Chang'an" is the first joint venture by Iranian and Chinese filmmakers. Jang Jung and Shirzad Yaqub from China along with Narges Abyar from Iran kicked off the project following a contract signed by film industries in both countries.
Abyar referred to her cooperation with Chinese filmmaking industry as a good collaboration, saying that Asian countries need to expand unity and teamwork in order to assure security and peace for regional states.
The Iranian filmmaker has also held some courses on film directing based on the deconstruction approach at a university in Xian.
