Reading Lolita in Tehran Movie
Some Persian-language media published news that they did not verify. “Lolita reading in Tehran” starring Golshifteh Farahani, Zar Amir Ebrahimi and Mina Kavani was of course proposed to the Cannes Film Festival but was not accepted in any of its official sections.
All the films of the different sections of the Cannes Film Festival 2023 have been officially announced and have also appeared on the website of this festival, but the “Iran International” channel announced that this film will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
This network repeated the false news several times and other media also published it. Of course, on the website of the “Screen” film magazine, it is stated that this film will be screened for “buyers” at the “Film Market” of the Cannes Festival.
Professionals know that in the movie market, anyone can rent a theater and show any movie they want.
“Lolita reading in Tehran” was filmed in Italy and is a joint production of Italy and Israel.
Israeli filmmaker Eran Riklis directed the film based on the best-selling book by Azar Nafisi.
