Derakhshandeh’s New Movie on Emotional Divorce

Filming of the acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Pouran Derakhshandeh’s new movie ‘Under the Smoky Ceiling’ is underway in Tehran.
Similar to her previous works, the film deals with an important contemporary and sensitive social issue.
This time Derakhshandeh, who has also written the script, has chosen the issue of emotional divorce between married couples, said a press release by the public relations of the movie.
The film, which is being shot at a house located in the Elahieh region in northern Tehran, features two award-winning actors Merila Zarei (known for playing in ‘Track 143’) and Farhad Aslani (‘The Daughter’) in lead roles.
The rest of the cast also includes a number of well-known actors: Maryam Bobani, Azita Hadjian, Hoshang Tavakoli, Hesam Navabsafavi, Hadi Marzban, Rasool Najafian, Shahram Haghighat-Doost, Fariba Motekhasses, Farsheed Zareifard and Nafiseh Rowshan.
Playing for the first time in front of the camera, two young actors Abolfazl Miri and Laleh Marzban will be introduced in the film.
Derakhshandeh’s last movie ‘Hush, Girls Don’t Scream’ was globally acclaimed. It had a successful circulation, attending several festivals and screened at various institutes and universities abroad. Tackling the serious issue of pedophilia, it was warmly welcomed by the audiences wherever it was shown.
A film director, producer, screen writer and researcher, Derakhshandeh, 65, has made influential films on social harm and mental health including ‘Mute Contact’ (1986), ‘A Little Bird of Happiness’ (1987), ‘Candle in the Wind’ (2003) and ‘Hush! Girls Don’t Scream’ (2013).
A third of ‘Under the Smoky Ceiling’ has been shot and with three months left to the 35th Fajr Film Festival (FFF), due in February, the movie will most likely get ready to take part in the event.
Her last work won the audience award at the 2013 FFF and was ranked second in the annual box-office list.
