Documentary film '1444' ready for screening in summer

Iranian documentary film '1444', a movie which warns about environmental degradation, directed by Mehdi Baqeri, will go on screen in Iran this summer.

Elaborating on his film, Baqeri said that the film is a warning to all about environmental degradation, Mehr News Agency reported.

The film opens with Iran's beautiful landscape in the mountainous regions of Fars Province, the Persian Gulf, Gahar Lake of Lorestan and Tehran's gorgeous forests.

However, all of a sudden, the scenes turn black and white as the crows' arrival marks environmental destruction. Traffic jam, smokes rising from factories, smoke from cigarettes and piled up trash in forests have all contributed to environmental degradation which would lead to the destruction and the end of the world.

The film then turns to drought and the destruction of forests by mankind.

The shooting of the film, which has employed a number of special shooting techniques, started in December 2016 and is expected to be completed by July 2017.

With over 10 years of experience in theater, the 25-year old filmmaker has already made two documentaries, four short stories and has attended theatrical festivals, worked with top professors and created various characters in theater.
