TEHRAN (IFILM) -- Iranian-Afghan documentary ‘The Forbidden Strings’ has been set to vie at the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in the Czech Republic.
Directed by Afghan filmmaker Hassan Nouri, the film will be screened at the 22nd edition of the Czech event.
The screening slot designated to the documentary is on March 8 and the assigned venue is Evald Chamber Cinema in the city of Prague.
The film narrates the story of four afghan descent young people who live in Iran. They work during the day time and rehearse their music at nights.
They have the burning passion for performing in front of audience so after about six months of rehearsing they find an opportunity to go on stage in Afghanistan.
Their trip back to the motherland that they have never seen is not easy and the country is not safe for them.
‘The Forbidden String’ which is a joint production of Iran, Afghanistan and Qatar has been produced by Iranian film producer Afsaneh Salari.
The One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival is an annual event in Prague and 36 cities of the Czech Republic.
The latest edition of the event is slated for March 5-14, 2020.
