Wild Jonquils, Yeva to represent Iran in Armenian festival
Two Iranian films 'Wild Jonquils' and 'Yeva' were accepted for the competition section of the 14th Rolan International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Armenia.
Directed by Rahbar Ghanbari, 'Wild Jonquils' narrates the story of a teacher who decides to go to neighboring villages to convince all the parents to send their children to school, otherwise the school would shut down if the required capacity is not filled, ifilmtv.ir reported.
Written and directed by Iranian-Armenian Anahid Abad, 'Yeva' is the story of a young woman who is forced to flee Yerevan with her daughter Nareh. She would have to stand trial there because she allegedly killed her husband. Uncle Ruben and the remote village in Nagorno-Karabakh are her last chance to go into hiding. But the villagers recognize her from the days of war when she had cared for the wounded as a doctor at the war front.
The 99-minute film stars many recognized actors and actresses from Armenia such as Narine Grigoryan and Shant Hovhannisyan.
The 14th edition of the Armenian festival begins today and will continue until November 10 in Yerevan, Armenia.
