‘Orange Days’ goes to Germany’s Mannheim filmfest.
Art and Experience: Iranian fiction-feature ‘Orange Days’ directed by Arash Lahooti has been accepted into the main competition program of 67th Mannheim-Heidelberg International Film Festival in Germany.
Iranian fiction-feature ‘Orange Days’ will take part in the main competition section of the 67th Mannheim-Heidelberg International Film Festival (IFFMH) in Germany, scheduled for 15-25 November 2018.
IFFMH presents arthouse films of international newcomer directors. Established in 1952, it is the second-oldest film festival in Germany after Berlin.
‘Orange Days’ narrates the story of “Aban, an overworked contractor in her forties, is dead set on outbidding her male competitor Kazem to harvest, with her crew of seasonal female workers, the largest orange orchard in the region.”
The Iranian film has already taken part at a number of other international festivals, including 16th TOFIFEST International Film Festival in Poland, the 19th Calgary International Film Festival in Canada, 2018 Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland, and 42nd São Paulo International Film Festival in Brazil.
