TEHRAN, May 5 (MNA) -- Two Iranian documentaries will go on display at the Hot Docs Film Festival, being held in Toronto from May 7 to 10.

Mehdi Moniri’s “Tinar” and “Final Fitting” by Reza Haeri will go on display on May 7 and 9 at the International Spectrum section of the festival.


“Final Fitting” is about a cramped shop in Qom which belongs to master tailor and armchair philosopher Mr. Arabpur. As the official tailor to some of the countrys most important religious leaders and politicians, his clients include former Iranian former president Seyyed Mohammad Khatami and the late Imam Khomeini.


Set in the majestic mountainous region of Iran, “Tinar” concerns the life of a boy named Tinar, a hired cowhand. Tinars job is to keep careful watch over a fairly large herd of milk cows. He eats, sleeps, and even plays with them; they are his only companions. Tinar’s spirit is remarkably resilient, though, making his story even more heartbreaking.
