Hatamikia’s war drama “The Scout” to open Fajr International Film Festival

TEHRAN -- Ebrahim Hatamikia’s 1990 war drama “The Scout” is due to open the 37th Fajr International Film Festival at Tehran’s Felestin Cinema on Wednesday.

Filmmaker Hatamikia as well as a number of cast and crew members are expected to attend the film screening session, the organizers have announced.

The film tells the story of a scout who must go through a path at the warfront that is being fired upon and bombarded by the Iraqi forces during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.

Hatamikia’s name has always added weight to the Fajr festival. He began his career with movies such as “Identity”, “The Scout”, “The Emigrant” and “The Union of the Benevolent”, which directly involved stories about the war.

All these movies brought him numerous awards at various editions of the festival.

A copy of the movie has also been selected to be screened in the Preserved Classics section of the festival, which will be held in Tehran from April 18 to 26.

Things to Know Before Trip
