A puppet-animation TV series will be made in the coming months on the life of the celebrated Mohammad Borujerdi, martyred in 1983, Mohammad-Ali Safoura, animation film director, said earlier this week.

"The pre-production phase of the project is underway and 13 episodes are due to be broadcast till the end of the current Iranian year, (March 2015)," cited him as saying. The animation series will total 26 episodes of 45 minutes each, using 'motion graphic technique'.

Safoura further said the project portrays two periods of the martyr's life, before and after the Islamic Revolution. "Since the series is like a documentary, we're doing a profound research on his life so as not to leave any aspect untold", he said.

He reaffirmed that the best stage designers, voice artists, equipment and facilities would be employed to depict the life of this eminent personality.

Major General Mohammad Boroujerdi (1955 - May 1983) was an Iranian soldier: one of the founders of the Islamic Revolution's Guards Corps (IRGC), and a commander in the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War. He played a key role in regaining control over the territories of Kurdistan. His close comrades included: Ahmad Motavaselian, Naser Kazemi and Mohammad Ebrahim Hemmat. 

Boroujerdi was martyred by a land mine on Mahabad-Naqadeh road. He is remembered for his kindness, fair treatment, faith and stamina.
