‘The Locust’ Premiers at U.S. South By Southwest

Iranian movie ‘The Locust’ has been selected to compete at the South By Southwest film festival (SXSW) in the U.S.
This is the first international presence of the film directed by Faezeh Azizkhani.
Produced by Manijeh Hekmat and Mahshid Ahangarani-Farahani, the feature film narrates the story of a writer named Hanieh who loves cinema but is not successful in her career.
She writes a screenplay based on her own life and gives it to her close friend, Pegah.
When the screenplay is ready to be read and practiced, the viewers and listeners start to criticize and judge the main character of the screenplay but Hanieh can’t take it.
Based on website of the SXSW, “it is an essential destination for global professionals, the annual March event features sessions, music and comedy showcases, film screenings, exhibitions, professional development, and a variety of networking opportunities.”
The “SXSW proves that the most unexpected discoveries happen when diverse topics and people come together.”
The 2022 edition of the event will be held on March 11-20.
