The feature film ‘Drum’ by Iranian director Keyvan Karimi, 32, will be screened at the 19th edition of Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Film (BAFICI) in Argentina.

At the 19th BAFICI from April 19-30, ‘Drum’ will represent Iran cinema and participate in the section on Human Rights. It will be screened on April 25, 26 and 28, IRNA reported.

The new film by Karimi was described as ‘abstract, political, and visionary’ by Italian film critic, author and journalist Giona A. Nazzaro, who was the artistic director of Critics Week section at 2016 Venice International Film festival in which the film participated.

Drum centers on a lawyer who receives a package that will turn his life upside-down. Events of the film occur in Tehran in a dreamlike environment with the black and white images. Drum is adapted from a book with the same name, written by Iranian formalist fiction writer Ali Morad Fadainia, 71.
