‘3 Faces’

Celluloid Dreams has closed a raft of deals on Iranian director Jafar Panahi’s feel-good road movie 3 Faces ahead of its premiere in Competition this weekend.

The film has sold to some 20 territories including Australia/New Zealand (Madman), UK/Ireland (New Wave Films), Germany (Weltkino), Italy (Cinema SRL), Spain (Golem), Brazil (Imovision), China (DDDream), Hong Kong (Golden Scene) and India (Alliance Media).

As previously announced Memento Distribution has acquired French rights for a June 6 release.

Like Taxi Tehran, the film appears to blend fact and fiction and follows the journey of a real-life actress Behnaz Jafari who receives a video message from young girl living in the provinces pleading for help after her family forbids her from pursuing her acting studies at the Tehran drama conservatory.
