Birthplace, a movie banned for six years, secures permission for public screening.
Birthplace, a movie which was directed by Abulhassan Dawoodi and remained banned for six years, has secured the official go-ahead to hit the screen without a single scene of the movie ending up on the cutting room floor.
Birthplace, which was bankrolled by the Artistic Department and was shot six years ago, is likely to be screened over the next few days. What is interesting about Birthplace is that it secured the best award for a movie from a nationalistic perspective at Fajr Film Festival. But when the festival was over, authorities moved to prevent its screening, a ban that lasted for six years.
