Iran Daily - - Art & Culture -

Pop­u­lar Ira­nian ac­tress and di­rec­tor Niki Karimi is set to hold her third photo ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled ‘Doomed Bloom’ from Fe­bru­ary 16 un­til March 6 at Etemad Gallery in Tehran’s Ne­garestan Gar­den.

The ac­tress held her first photo ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled ‘Hori­zons’ in 2009 in which she show­cased a col­lec­tion of pho­tos from her trav­els to sev­eral Ira­nian cities, in­clud­ing Kashan, Is­fa­han, Ban­dar An­zali, Rasht, Lahi­jan and Ma­souleh as well as Lorestan Prov­ince, re­ported.

Born in 1971, Karimi’s in­ter­est in films and lit­er­a­ture in­spired her to be­come an ac­tress at a very young age. She started act­ing with the­ater groups in el­e­men­tary school un­til Jamshid Gor­gin (the ac­tor) dis­cov­ered her tal­ent as an ac­tress in a school play.

Her first ap­pear­ance in cinema was in ‘Temp­ta­tion’ in 1989, but her next per­for­mances in movies such as ‘The Bride’ and ‘Sara’ brought her na­tional fame. She won awards at the San Se­bastián Film Fes­ti­val and the Nantes Film Fes­ti­val for the men­tioned movies.

She con­tin­ued her cin­e­matic ca­reer star­ring in movies by well­known Ira­nian film­mak­ers and has won many awards na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

In 2004, she made her first fea­ture film ‘One Night’ which was screened in nu­mer­ous in­ter­na­tional film fes­ti­vals such as the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val 2006 in the Un Cer­tain Re­gards Sec­tion.

Her se­cond fea­ture film ‘A Few Days Later’ pre­miered at Rome Film Fes­ti­val in 2006 while the third one, ‘Fi­nal Whis­tle’, won three awards at the Ve­soul In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val of Asian Cinema in France in 2010.

The cel­e­brated Ira­nian ac­tress has served on the panel of jury in sev­eral renowned film fes­ti­vals, in­clud­ing the Ber­lin Film Fes­ti­val and the 60th Cannes Film Fes­ti­val.
