After its nomination at main competition section of 53rd edition of Hof International Film Festival in Germany, Domino paved its way to Sofia's Menar and Germany's Max Ophuls film festivals, the Persian-language cinema media outlets reported.
Max Ophuls Film Festival is slated to host Domino on January 21-22. This festival has over 40 years of record and is one of the most important festivals for finding the talents of young filmmakers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The Sofia's Menar Film Festival will also display Domino on January 18 and a Professor of Persian literature at Sofia University, Ludmila Yaniova, who has also written a book on Iran female filmmakers, will review the film after displaying it.
The film is about a young woman, Yalda, who despite many disagreements with her husband, she tries to maintain her marriage because of her worries about the future and fears of prejudice. But the differences are growing and there is no communication between the two. In the end, there is no other choice but divorce.
Yalda moves back to her family, but they want to hide the divorce, and so Yalda has to stay away from her relatives. These developments change Yalda into a completely different person.
The Hof International Film Festival, founded in 1967, is one of the most important film festivals in Germany. Filmmakers such as Maren Ade, Tom Tykwer, Caroline Link, Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmusch, Werner Herzog and Peter Jackson had their premieres in Hof as the kick-off platform for an international career. Thus, the Hof International Film Festival is considered the festival for new discoveries.
The 53rd Hof International Film Festival was held on October 22-27, 2019 with the film Baumbacher Syndrome by Gregory Kirchhoff.
