Vic­tor Forniés to visit Tehran to pro­mote “A Fa­ther”

Tehran Times - - ART & CULTURE -

TEHRAN – Paris­based Span­ish filmmaker Vic­tor Forniés will at­tend the 11th Cin­ema Verite fes­ti­val in Tehran to pro­mote his doc­u­men­tary “A Fa­ther” (“Un Padre”), the or­ga­niz­ers an­nounced on Mon­day.

The doc­u­men­tary is an in­ti­mate por­trait of his fa­ther, seek­ing to un­der­stand the si­lence that has de­fined their re­la­tion­ship. It also de­picts the emo­tional com­plex­ity of fa­ther­son re­la­tion­ships.

“A Fa­ther” will be screened in the of­fi­cial com­pe­ti­tion of the Cin­ema Verite, Iran’s ma­jor fes­ti­val doc­u­men­tary cin­ema that will be held at Tehran’s Charsu Cine­plex from De­cem­ber 10 to 17.

Over 60 film­mak­ers, in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­val ex­ec­u­tives and film dis­trib­u­tors have been in­vited to at­tend the Cin­ema Verite fes­ti­val this year.

Renowned Ital­ian doc­u­men­tar­ian Gian­franco Rosi, Ger­man filmmaker and jour­nal­ist An­dreas Ewels, French critic Matthieu Dar­ras and pro­gram direc­tor of the Parisian fes­ti­val of the Cin­ema du Reel Carine Ber­nasconi are just a few of the in­vi­tees.

Dozens of meet­ings and work­shops are sched­uled to be held by a num­ber of the guests.
