Art and Experience: Masoud Madadi’s ‘Gita’ will be screened in competitive section of the 7th edition of the Oaxaca FilmFest, Mexico.
A product of the Documentary and Experimental Film Center (DEFC) and produced by Majid Sheikhansari, ‘Gita’ relates the life of the eponymous character and her husband Amir. Struck by the nostalgia for her son, who is not in Iran, Gita experiences difficulties which life poses on the family, unexpected and tortuous as to hit their halcyon days with tumult.
