‘The Day’ to go on screen at Bollywood Festival Norway
Art and Experience:
Iran-Bangladesh joint film ‘The Day’ will be screened at the 19th Bollywood Festival Norway.
Produced and directed by Morteza Atash Zamzam, ‘The Day’ in its first international presence will take part in the 19th Bollywood Festival Norway.
It is the first joint Iranian-Bangladesh film project to complete its filming in the two countries before the outbreak of coronavirus and later in Afghanistan and Turkey.
The synopsis of ‘The Day’ read, “A Bangladeshi police officer travels to the two countries of Iran and Turkey to save the lives of a number of his compatriots who are trapped by a drug trafficking gang so that he can complete his mission with the help of Interpol and Iranian police.”
