2 Iranian films to be screened at SIFF FILM PANORAMA

Tehran (ISNA) – Two Iranian films “Just 6.5” directed by Saeed Roustaee and “Old Men Never Die” by Reza Jamali have added to the current Iranian representatives in the 23rd Shanghai International film festival.

“Just 6.5” and “Old Men Never Die” will be screened at the FILM PANORAMA section of the event.

“Just 6.5” has already attended a number of international festivals around the world and won several international awards including the Best Director and the Best Actor awards from Tokyo International Film Festival.

“Old Men Never Die” is about 100-year-old Aslan, the head of a death squad in youth who lives with his other single old fellows in a remote village. Since he came to the village 45 years ago, nobody has ever died in the village! Now, most of the population consists of old and disabled men. All being done with life, they believe the only way to bring death back to the village is to commit suicide!

Meanwhile “Najibeh” directed by Mostafa Gandomkar and “The Badger” directed by Kazem Mollai will be competing for the Asian New Talent Award at the festival.

The short animation “Crab” by Shiva Sadeq-Asadi will be contending for the Golden Goblet Award in the official section.

The 23rd Shanghai International Film Festival will be held from July 25 to August 2. The event will be held both offline and online in a bid to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
