Critic Omid Najvan and Farahmand will attend the review session, which will follow after a screening at 5 p.m., the DEFC announced on Saturday.
The film is about Nur, a female journalist who covers stories about Syrian and Iraqi women and children in the war against the ISIS terrorists.
In December 2017, the film won the best feature-length documentary award at the 11th Cinema Verite festival, Iran’s major international festival of documentary cinema that is organized by the DEFC every year.
It also brought Farahmand the award for best director in the national competition section.
The film is also an entry to the 71st Locarno International Film Festival, which is scheduled to be held in the Swiss city from August 1 to 11.
