Art and Experience: Iranian director Nahid Hassanzadeh’s drama “Another Time” will compete in the 22nd Palm Beach International Film Festival next week.

The film is about Ghadir, a chemical plant worker, who is arrested during a demonstration and imprisoned without trial following a protest against being unpaid for over a year. However, he is released one year later with no explanation given. On arriving home, he finds his daughter, Somayyeh, has given birth out of wedlock.

The Palm Beach festival, which will be held in the city in the southeast of Florida in the U.S. from March 29 to April 2, is renowned industry-wide in its commitment to supporting emerging filmmakers of today and tomorrow.
