TEHRAN –(Iranart)- The U.S.-based Iranian filmmaker Amir Naderi’s 2016 movie “Monte” is currently on screen at Tehran’s Art and Experience Cinemas dedicated to screening art films.
Starring Andrea Sartoretti and Claudia Potenza the 105-minute drama was filmed in Italy in the mountainous regions of Alto Adige and Friuli.
The film tells the story of a man who makes every attempt to bring the sunlight into his village, where his family is barely able to survive because of the prevailing darkness.
