Sartre Work for Film Director’s Debut Play

Filmmaker Manouchehr Hadi plans to stage Jean-Paul Sartre’s ‘The Unburied Dead’ as his first theatrical experience in Tehran’s Niavaran Cultural Center in September.
A movie director and screenwriter, Hadi has directed four feature films and three TV series in Iran in the past eight years. This will be his first attempt to stage a play, MNA reported.
The rehearsals started two months ago and the actors are getting ready for the performance. Yekta Naser (Hadi’s wife), Rasoul Najafian, Sina Razani and Sirus Hemmati are in the cast.
The play is about a group of people involved in the Italian resistance movement who are arrested and tortured by German soldiers during World War II.
Written in 1941, Sartre’s play is in two acts and four scenes and Hadi’s work will strictly follow the original text.
Jean Paul Sartre (1905-1980) was a French philosopher, playwright, novelist, political activist, biographer, and literary critic.
He was one of the key figures in the philosophy of existentialism, a term applied to the work of certain late 19th and 20th-century philosophers who shared the belief that philosophical thinking begins with the human subject - not merely the thinking subject, but the acting, feeling, living human individual.
In existentialism, the individual’s starting point is characterized by what has been called “the existential attitude” or a sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world.
Sartre’s plays are richly symbolic and serve as a means of conveying his philosophy.

  Latest Movie
Hadi’s fifth movie ‘I’m Not Salvador’ is also slated for screening in September. It will be his first experience abroad. A large part of the movie was shot in Brazil and just 10% of the locations are in Tehran.
Former Brazilian soccer star Rivaldo, 43, has played in the film along with Iranian actors Reza Attaran, Yekta Naser, and Brazilian actors Carol Vidotti and Barry Fiocca among others.
It is a comedy about the life of an Iranian in Brazil who is mistaken by a local girl for a guy called Salvador; this is the beginning of a series of funny incidents that happen to him.
The producer Mansour Sohrabpour says, the film expects to become a box office hit due to its plot and the beautiful Brazilian locales that can interest the Iranian audience.
Casting top comedian Attaran, whose movies have been among the bestsellers in the past years, is another factor that can draw film fans in big numbers.
