The Iranian feature film ‘Melancholia’ directed by Morteza Atashzamzam is attending the international competition section of the 25th International Film Festival ‘Love is Folly’ in Varna, Bulgaria, August 25-September 3.

It is about a married woman, Mina, who gets pregnant after a long time. However, she feels being ignored by Hesam, her husband. Indeed, he is more concerned about the personal and family problems of his colleague Shirin, who has recently taken a divorce.

Leila Otadi, Mohamadreza Hedayati, Laleh Eskandari and Nader Fallah are in the cast, reported.

Screening of the film at the festival is slated for Sunday, and there will be a Q & A session on Monday in the presence of the director and two actors.

Atashzamzam, Hedayati and Eskandari traveled to Varna and walked down the red carpet at the festival venue.

It is Atashzamzam’s debut as a director. One of the major features of the film, which was completely shot in Isfahan, is the architecture of the ancient tourist city highlighted in the background.
