“The Wasteland” awarded as best film in Venice’s Orizzonti section

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian film “The Wasteland” directed by Ahmad Bahrami was awarded as the best film in the Venice International Film Festival's Orizzonti section.

The synopsis of “The Wasteland” reads, “A remote brick manufacture factory produces bricks in an ancient way. Many families with different ethnicities work in the factory and the boss seems to hold the key to solving their problems. Forty-year-old Lotfollah, who has been born on-site, is the factory supervisor and acts as go-between for the workers and the boss. Boss Lotfollah has gathered all the workers in front of his office. He wants to talk to them about the shutdown of the factory. All matters now to Lotfollah is to keep Sarvar unharmed, the woman he has been in love with for a long time.”

The 77th Venice International Film Festival took place at Venice Lido from 2 - 12 September 2020.
