Iranian actress Niki Karimi to hold photo exhibition
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, ifilmtv.ir 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.
