TEHRAN, Jan. 30 (MNA) – German Match Factory has picked up international sales rights to Iranian film ‘A Dragon Arrives!’.

The new feature from Iranian writer-director Mani Haghighi, A Dragon Arrives!, will participate in the official competition section of the Berlin International Film Festival this year.

The German company has bought international sales rights of three other films which will compete at Berlin Film Festival which include Rafi Pitt’s Soy Nero, Letters From War by Ivo M. Ferreira and Death In Sarajevo by Danis Tanović.

Haghighi has produced the film under the banner of Dark Precursor Productions Company in association with Crossfade Films.

Pointing to his cooperation with German Match Factory, Haghighi expressed satisfaction with his cooperation with German Co.

“I’m thrilled and delighted about working with The Match Factory. Even a brief glance at their catalogue shows that they’ve always been up to date, brave and extremely cool,” said director Mani Haghighi.

Based on a true story, A Dragon Arrives! follows three adventurous young men who are put in danger by their unauthorized investigation into the legend of a seismological phenomenon in an ancient graveyard on a mysterious island.

The director’s previous feature was black-comedy Modest Reception, which won the NETPAC Prize for best Asian film at the 2012 Berlinale.
