‘Risk of Acid Rain’ Published

A book on the script of the Iranian movie ‘Risk of Acid Rain’, directed by Behtash Sanaeeha, has been published by Negah publishing house.
Co-written by Maryam Moqaddam and Sanaeeha, the film is a poetic story that depicts the life of Manuchehr, a 60-year-old retiree from a tobacco company, who still insists on going to work while struggling with the loneliness of retirement. When his mother passes away, Manuchehr, who is not married, sets off on a journey to try to find his one and only old friend in Tehran, IBNA reported.
On a note to the book, Sanaeeha wrote: “Everything started from a shared background, when Moqaddam and I poured out our biggest concerns: ‘loneliness and quandary of humans’. This was a multi-layered theme, including love, death and eternity. We presented a minimal version of this grievous mentality of human.”
Music for the film is by the Swedish composer Henrik Nagi who is known for his cooperation with Iranian musicians and his recent album using music compilation from the Persian poet Khayyam.
Noted author Shams Langeroodi and Maryam Moqaddam act in the film.
The film was premiered at the 33rd Fajr Film Festival, ‘New Vision’ section, dedicated to screening works by first-time filmmakers. It has attended several foreign events and won the Netpac Award in Australia. In addition, it won an honorary diploma for the best original screenplay.
The movie also won the jury special prize at the 2nd International Film Festival in Colombo (IFFC), Sri Lanka (Nov. 6-11, 2015).
