Iran's 'Orange Days' to go on screen in Italian festival

Iranian feature film 'Orange Days', directed by Arash Lahooti, was selected to take part in the main competition section of the 24th MedFilm Festival in Italy.

'Orange Days' tells the story of Aban, a 45-year-old female contractor in the tough and male-dominated orange harvesting industry. Aban enters a competition to win a large contract. She wins the deal laying her own house down as security, reported.

Now, she leads a group of female workers who work for her on a large harvest. Her efforts of staying strong in this patriarch society remain futile while anyone involved in her story, including her husband, stands in the way of her success.

A number of Iranian superstars are in the cast of the flick, including Hedieh Tehrani, Ali Mosaffa and Mehran Ahmadi.

The film had its international premiere at the 43rd Toronto International Film Festival in Canada and is scheduled to attend the 2018 edition of Mannheim-Heidelberg International Film Festival in Germany which will kick off on November 15.

Launched in 1995, MedFilm Festival is the first festival in Italy dedicated to promoting Mediterranean and European cinema.

The 24th edition of the Italian film festival opened November 9 and is set to wrap up on November 18 in Rome, Italy.
