Iranian director takes “Hotchpotch” to Greek festival
Iranian director Ebrahim Foruzesh’s “Hotchpotch” is currently competing at the 16th Olympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People in Pyrgos, Greece.
The film is based on a story of the same name by the celebrated Iranian author Hushang Moradi Kermani.
Hedayat Hashemi, Sina Razani, Leila Otadi, Setareh Eskandari, Maedeh Tahmasbi, Kataneh Afsharinejad and Javad Zeituni star in the movie.
The film is the story of a mother who dies giving birth to a baby. Responsible for taking care of the newborn child singlehandedly, the father faces many problems as the baby does not want to be bottle-fed.
More than 50 films from all over the world are competing in this year’s Olympia festival, which will run until December 7.
