Williamsburg filmfest to screen ‘Paradise’
Art and Experience: ‘Paradise’ is scheduled to be screened at the Williamsburg Int’l Film & Music Competition in US.
Directed by Ali Atshani, the Iran-Germany joint production is to vie at the competition section of the 10th edition of the event.
‘Paradise’ narrates the story of two seminary students who wish to attend an academic seminar on religions in Germany. Their teacher, however, doesn’t give them the permission to do so.
The two young men convince the teacher to even go with them, though. Now the three are on a mission to show the true face of Islam to the world and draw a line between the real Islam and the fake divisions.
Mohammad-Javad Ezzati and Mehran Rajabi are two of the Iranian actors who play starring roles in the film. Some German actors, including Olivia Burkhart, have also appeared in the 2015 movie.
The Williamsburg International Film Festival was established to provide a platform for the creative visions of today’s emerging artists of all disciplines.
The film festival is an opportunity for filmmakers to enhance their careers by exposing their projects to a powerful audience, gaining crucial media exposure and strengthening industry relationships.
The 10th edition of the WILLiFEST is to be held on September 28-29, 2018 in New York.
