Iranian feature ‘Domino’ to compete in Germany

Iranian feature film, ‘Domino,’ directed by Laleh Barzegar, will take part in the 2020 Max Ophüls Prize Film Festival in Germany, slated for January 20-26.

The German festival is to host ‘Domino’ on January 21-22. This festival has over 40 years of record and is one of the most important festivals for finding the talents of young filmmakers around the world, IRNA wrote.

The film is about a young woman, Yalda, who despite many disagreements with her husband, tries to maintain her marriage because of her worries about the future and fears of prejudice. But the differences are growing and, in the end, there is no other choice but divorce.

Yalda moves back to her family, but they want to hide the divorce, and so Yalda has to stay away from her relatives. These circumstances change Yalda into a completely different person.

The film has so far participated in several festivals, namely, the 53rd edition of Hof International Film Festival in Germany, October 22-27, and Menar Film Festival in Bulgaria.

The Bulgarian festival screened ‘Domino’ on January 18 and professor of Persian literature at Sofia University, Ludmila Yaniova, who has also written a book on female Iranian filmmakers, reviewed the film.
