TEHRAN (AIPFF) – Documentarian Mohsen Eslamzadeh says he has shot a new documentary about Chilean anti-coup filmmaker Miguel Littin about his one-week visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran in September.
Eslamzadeh said he produced the item jointly with his friend Mehdi Khoshnejad, “who did most of the world,” and will display the work at the opening ceremony of the Ammar Popular Film Festival.
He said they have not yet picked a title for the documentary.
“Littin visited Iran with a presupposition about the Islamic Republic contrary to what he saw in the country,” added the filmmaker. “Before his visit, he was pressured by the Chilean government; therefore, the documentary’s storyline is focused on Littin’s impression of Iran.”
During his stay in Iran, he added, “we felt he was startled to see activities at the APFF because he said he saw similar activities in Latin America, too; for example films may be screened at the back of trucks or enclosed spaces for villagers just like in Iran.”
He said Littin grew in a family of Palestinian lineage and shares many thoughts with Muslims. “For example, he said he would retreat to a mosques just like Muslims for supplications from time to time.”
Littin’s confrontation with Martyr President Ali Rajaei in his Tehran domicile was also interesting, added Eslamzadeh, saying he literally perused the house and inspected everything. “It would be fair to say that we was fully impressed by Martyr Rajaei’s disposition.”
This documentary is not necessarily produced for the Iranian audience and will be debuted at APFF.
“We [I and Mehdi Khoshnejad] pride ourselves for getting Littin’s permit to make this work and even gave us ideas for making the work even better. I was personally pretty impressed by him.”
