Rome’s House of Cinema hosts Iranian film week

Some six Iranian screen productions are slated to be presented at the one-week long program.

Gold and Copper by Homayoun Asaadian, Saadatabad by Maziar Miri, Fireworks Wednesday by Asghar Farhadi, Facing Mirrors directed by Negar Azarbaijani, Here without Me by Bahram Tavakkoli, and Mr. Yusef by Ali Rafiei are among the film lineup.

Azarbaijani’s debut drama Facing Mirrors has opened the screening programs.

The film’s producer Fereshteh Taerpour also attended the opening ceremony.

“It is a great opportunity to watch Facing Mirrors with the Italian audiences,” Taerpour had earlier stated.

The well-praised movie Facing Mirrors weaves together the lives of two women with different social and cultural backgrounds.

The film has been lauded at many international festivals and received several awards such as the Best Narrative Feature Award at the 2012 International Three Dollar Bill Cinema in Seattle.

The House of Cinema in Rome has organized the program with the collaboration of Iranian cultural office in Italy.

All the movies in lineup will be presented with Italian subtitles.
