Iranian Films on Norouz to Go on Screen in Tajikistan

TEHRAN (FNA)- Short films and documentaries directed by the Iranian filmmakers about Norouz are due to be displayed in the Central Asian state of Tajikistan.



Farhad Mehranfar's New Year, Farshad Fereshteh-Hekmat's Anahid, Gholam Reza Razavi's Night Under the Sky, Masoud Soflaei's Flight in the Mirrot and Panahbarkhoda Rezaei's Ancient Day will be among the films scheduled to be screened during the program.

The event, cosponsored by the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization (ICRO) and the Iranian Embassy in Tajikistan, is slated to be held in the cities of Dushanbe and Khujand on March 26 and 27.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy a photo exhibition introducing Norouz traditions and ceremonies on the sidelines of the cultural program.

For Iranians, Norouz is a celebration of new beginnings, a time to visit relatives and friends, and pay respect to senior family members.

Meaning 'new day,' Norouz is celebrated by over 300 million people worldwide on March 21st.

Days before the Iranian New Year's Eve, people carefully clean their homes, go to markets and traditional bazaars to clothe themselves in new garments and assemble dainty edibles, flowers and Norouz ornaments, including flowers and green grass.
