Iran and South Korea sign contract on 1st International film co-production
Art and Experience: Iran and South Korea have signed a contract for an international co-production of a motion picture for the very first time.
The contract on production of the Korean-Iranian film has been signed in the presence of a representative from Iran’s vice presidency for science and technology and deputy culture minister of Korea. Eshragh Cinema Institute and Documentary and Experimental Film Center will collaborate with a Korean company to produce this motion picture whose script has recently been completed.
The film which narrates a historical and mythical story revolving around the culture of the two countries is to be produced by Iranian producer Ali Nuri Oskouei and Suk Sun-Ju from South Korea. Kim Hyun-Jun will be directing the film.
Lately, Iran’s cinema industry has been more active in the international scene. About two weeks ago, American actor Val Kilmer signed on to star in ‘1st Born’, a comedy by Iranian director, Ali Atshani. This is the first joint production between Iran and Hollywood.
