Iranian film “Careless Crime” directed by Shahram Mokri won Best Film award at the competition section of New Views at the Olhar Film Festival in Brazil.
Olhar Film Festival was held October 6-14, focusing on movies with structural creativity.
The synopsis of “Careless Crime” reads, “Forty years ago, during the uprising to overthrow the Shah’s regime in Iran, protestors set fire to movie theatres as a way of showing opposition to Western culture. Many cinemas were burned down. In one tragic case, a theatre was set on fire with four hundred people inside, most of whom were burned alive. Forty years have passed and, in contemporary Iran, four individuals also decide to burn a cinema down. Their intended target is a theatre showing a film about an unearthed, unexploded missile. Will past and present meet?”
“Careless Crime” has already won several awards from different film festivals such as Venice International Film Festival.
