“A bunch of well-off teenagers rob a shop for fun. One of them, 16-year-old Golsa, hides the recording of the robbery. First the friends, and later their parents as well as the girl’s parents, ask her to give the video away, so it would not get into the hands of the police,” a synopsis for the film reads.
The movie has attended a number of international film festivals and it has obtained several awards, such as Berlin’s Jury Grand Prix and Crystal Simorgh for the Best First Film at Fajr International Film Festival.
In Panorama section of international feature films, Iranian film ‘No Date, No Signature’ directed by Vahid Jalilvand will go on silver screen.
In competition section of international short films, two Iranian films ‘Lunch Time’ by Alireza Qasemi and ‘Counterclockwise’ by Pedram Yazdani will be screened.
