TEHRAN, Sept. 26 (MNA) -- The Tokyo International Film Festival will be screening the Iranian film “Flamingo No. 13” starring Iranian scholar and poet Shams Langerudi.

Directed by “Hamid Reza Aliqolian”, the script for the 80-minute film was written by poet Rasul Yunan who also acts in the film.

“There is a professor in the film who plays a crucial role in the plot. We felt that Master Langerudi fit the role. Also he was member of the Anahita theater troupe many years ago,” Aliqolian told the Persian service of ISNA.
“The film is about people who are exiled from their daily life in a far away place. One of the characters named Soleyman claims that he saw a flamingo with a bloody beak which belongs to distant lands,” the film’s scriptwriter and poet Rasul Yunan mentioned.
The flamingo is a symbol of overcoming the limitations existing in the place of exile. Soleyman loses his life to prove his point but his wife Tamay cannot accept his death, he mentioned.
Yunan described the film’s professor (Shams Langerudi) as the “light of the tragic story” who opposes all the injustice throughout the film.
“Flamingo No. 13” will go on screen October 23 and 25 in the competition section of the festival which will be held from October 23 to 31.
