“I Want to Be a King” in Big Sky Documentary Film Festival
Art and Experience: I Want to Be a King, directed by Mehdi Ganji, will be showcased at the 13th Annual Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (BSDFF) in the US.
Big Sky Documentary Film Festival held on Feb. 9-28 in Montana will screen the documentary I Want to Be a King, along with 100 other selected films.
The 70-minute I Want to Be a King narrates the story of a man named Abbas that has turned his own home to a guest house in a nomadic area of Iran. With the support of his wife and three children, he runs a successful Eco-tourism business. He has an ambitious dream, creating a new tribe by his own and becoming the sovereign. Therefore, he plans seriously to fulfill his dream and searching for a nomadic girl to be the queen of his tribe. His current wife and children are against this idea and break up with him.
The work has so far received many awards in different international film festivals including the 33rd Fajr International Film Festival, International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam, Millennium International Documentary Film Festival (Belgium) and Zurich Film Festival.
