Iran's "Everybody Asleep" at Italian religious film festival

TEHRAN, Sept. 26 (Mehr News Agency) -- Director Fereidun Hassanpur's "When Everybody Was Asleep" is scheduled to be screened at the Religion Today Film Festival in Italy, producer Fereshteh Ta'erpur announced on Tuesday.

The 9th edition of the event will be held from October 11 to 14 in Trento.

Ta'erpur, Hassanpur, and leading actress Golab Adineh have also been invited to the event.

Ta'erpur once expressed hope that Iranian officials would keep their word and support spiritual films intended for children and young adults.

"I won't let the film be publicly screened in the country except in the way it deserves," she said.

Starring Mohammadreza Forutan, Ghazal Shakeri, and Golab Adineh, the movie won the Best Film award in the Spiritual Films section of the 24th Fajr International Film Festival here last January.

The film tells the story of an aged woman named Bibi Salimeh, who finally gets her turn to go on a pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca.

However, Bibi Salimeh is informed just before her departure that she has been banned from traveling due to her senility.
