36th FIFF Will Show 11 Preserved Classic Films

The 36th Fajr International Film Festival (April 19-27 in Tehran) will screen 11 films in its ‘Classics Preserved’ section that deals with restored old films.
Four films from Iran and seven from other nations are scheduled for this part of the festival, ISNA reported.
The Iranian movies restored and prepared for the section are two feature-length and two short films. They have been restored at the archives office of the state-owned Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.
One of the short films is ‘Arbaeen’. It is the Arabic term for 40 and the name of a major Shia mourning occasion held annually to mark the 40th day after the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS), the third Imam of Shia Muslims in the Karbala desert in Iraq in 680 AD. It is directed by filmmaker and screenwriter Nasser Taqvaee, 76, and is a documentation of religious traditions and rituals in the southern province of Bushehr.
