HÀ NỘI — With the theme "Children of Heaven", during August, the Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) will present four movies from Brazil, Iran, Italy and the US, which are about children all over the world or childhood memories.
In the first week, the movie Children of Heaven from Iran will be presented to audiences.
A 1997 Iranian family drama film, Children of Heaven was written and directed by Majid Majidi. The movie is about the young boy Ali, who accidentally loses his little sister Zahra’s only pair of shoes. The siblings attempt to hide the bad news from their poverty-stricken father and ill mother. They devise a scheme to share Ali’s own pair of worn sneakers until they can find a new pair of shoes for Zahra. This documentary-like film was shot on location in some of Tehran’s poorest areas.
The movie was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1998.
It will be presented in the original language with Vietnamese subtitles.
Entry: VNĐ20,000. All the proceeds will be donated to the TPD’s fund for movie talents. TPD is on Level 4, 54 Trần Hưng Đạo Street. — VNS
