Watch: The Zodiac film series, featuring Kubrick, will premiere as sexy Iran as the nation faces the worst nuclear crisis since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, according to an announcement made Monday by the Iranian Film Institute.
The Zondag Films group, which has produced several of the films, has also announced a production in Tehran of a film about the assassination of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
Zondags films include “The Killing” (2004) and “Killing” (2005).
The Zonds films have been widely acclaimed for their depiction of Iranian politics, religious extremism and the brutal repression of dissidents.
The series will begin screening in Iran in the next few weeks.
The institute also announced that it will release “A New Era” (2009) and other films in the same year.
The first film in the series, “The Zondats”, is a drama about a young Iranian woman who becomes embroiled in the Iranian revolution and her efforts to build a new nation and fight for freedom.
Her efforts to win the trust of her fellow revolutionaries, including her fellow women, leads to her becoming a target for assassination.
She is soon arrested and imprisoned in Tehran.
She, and the others, are subjected to harsh interrogations.
They are subjected repeatedly to electric shocks, as well as to torture.
They also are forced to work in an office and live in a house full of filthy, dirty clothes and other living conditions.
The other films are about the Iranian women who are revolutionaries and women who try to make a difference for women’s rights and freedom.
The women who make these films are the most vulnerable in the country.
They live in the shadows and they must live in fear.
“A new era” will be screened at Tehran Film Festival on April 18, 2019, the institute said.
