‘Reverence’ to go on screen at Santa Barbara filmfest.
Art and Experience: Iranian short ‘Reverence’ directed by Sogol Rezvani will be screened at Santa Barbara International Film Festival, which will be held in Santa Barbara, California, from Jan. 30 to Feb. 9.
Making its debut at the international level, Reverence will vie for awards in a heated rivalry among some 100 films representing different countries across the world.
‘Reverence’ tells the story of Rana, a theater actress, who has entered into a romantic relationship with her co-star, Bahram. Rana decides to evade the truth right before going on the stage on the last night of the play.
Rezvani won the Best Director Award for Reverence at 35th Tehran International Short Film Festival in November.
