Iranian Film “Bench Cinema” at Marco Polo festival


“Bench Cinema” by the Iranian director Mohammad Rahmanian is competing in the Marco Polo International Film Festival in Korcula, Croatia.

The film is about Nasi who, after being released from prison, spends months watching films and memorizes all the lines. He then travels around to perform the films as a one man show on a bench. Gradually he forms a theatre group called Cinema Bench.

The festival, which will come to an end on August 27, intends to promote, build and present cinematography dealing with the Silk Road, which helped a dialogue among different civilizations during the ancient times.

The event is also taking place in Korcula, which is known as the mythical starting point of Marco Polo’s travels.
