TEHRAN – (Iranart)- “The Lady” by Iranian filmmaker Mohammad Habibi-Mansur has been honored at the Veracruz World Film Festival, a Mexican festival exclusively dedicated to independent films.
The film won a special mention at the festival that ran from December 7 to 30.
The film centers on the life of Lady Esmat Ahmadian, mother of Ebrahim and Esmaeil Farjavani, the two brothers who were martyred during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.
The martyrs’ mother began serious social and economic activities after the war, having become an influential lady in Ahvaz, a city in Iran’s southwestern Khuzestan Province.
It took two years for the crew to portray an accurate image of a successful lady in this film.
“Lady” was an entry in the documentary section of the 38th Fajr Film Festival last year.
