Movies from Iran competing in Chennai festival
Art and Experience: Two Iranian films will go on screen at the 16th edition of the Chennai International Film Festival, which will open in the Indian town today.
“Orange Days” by Arash Lahuti and “Dayan” by Behruz Nuranipur will be screened in the World Cinema competition.
“Orange Days” tells the story of Aban, the only female contractor in the cutthroat and male-dominated orange harvesting industry, who enters a competition to win a large contract.
“Dayan” is about women in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region, who are captured by ISIS fighters and cannot return to their families.
The festival will be running until December 20.
