“Untimely” to vie at Oldenburg filmfest

Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian feature film “Untimely” directed by Pouya Eshtehardi will be screened at the competition section of independent movies of the 27th Oldenburg International Film Festival in Germany.

“Untimely” will compete with films from the US, Germany, Denmark, Portugal, Mexico, and Argentina for the award.

The Iranian film tells the story of Hamin, a young private, who is serving his military service on the border of Iran and Pakistan. Hamin took a day off to attend his sister’s wedding, but his vacation was canceled after he was caught smoking cigarette. While standing guard on the watchtower, he reviewed the past years and the things that happened to him and his sister since their childhood.

Labeled “the European Sundance” by Hollywood Reporter, the Oldenburg gala is one of the most influential film festivals in the world. The festival aims to promote innovative and independent filmmaking. The event supports independent filmmakers with diverse voices.

This edition of the event is slated for September 16-20, 2020.
