“Watching This Movie Is a Crime” promotes national unity: director

TEHRAN – Director Reza Zehtabchian has said that he has made his latest film “Watching This Movie Is a Crime” to promote national unity.

Judging people by their appearance, their ideology, and generally by the stereotypes we have in mind can taint the national unity. That’s what I’ve tried to warn about in my film,” Zehtabchian said at a press conference held after a screening of the film during the 37th Fajr Film Festival on Tuesday.

The film is about Amir, a religious man, whose pregnant wife loses her baby after being beaten by a drunken English-Iranian man. He files a lawsuit against the man, but the perpetrator is released based on political convenience.

Things to Know Before Trip
