‘Wednesday’ Attending Cinequest Festival in US

Iranian feature film ‘Wednesday’ directed by Soroush Mohammadzadeh is attending the Cinequest Film and VR Festival in the US.
Iran’s only representative at the event (February 28-March 10), the movie is Mohammadzadeh’s debut film which has had two showings so far, and will be screened two more times during the festival on March 8 and 10, Mehr News Agency reported.
The story is about a family waiting for the court verdict to be announced for their father’s killer, who is related to their new son-in-law, and finally, justice is due. Sending the killer to death would mean a total schism between two families and no future for the newlywed couple. It is up to the two brothers to avenge the tragedy that has left them broken, or spare his life, forgive and carry on.
A movie that is profoundly affecting, the drama explores the high stakes when choosing between love, anger, and tradition. It won the Art and Experience Award at the 34th Fajr Film Festival in Tehran in 2015.
The cast includes Shahab Hosseini, Arman Darvish, Nasim Adabi, Hasti  Mahdavi, Amirhosein Shaam-Bayati and Elham Haaj-Fathali.
