Iranian film, Hunter in Viennale International Festival

TEHRAN (ISNA)-Austrian Viennale Film International Festival has hosted Iran's "Hunter" as it celebrates its 48th edition.

The film made by Rafi Pitts, a German-Iranian prominent director, was candidate for "Gold Bear" of Berlin International Film Festival in 2009.

The event opened on October 21 closes on November 3.

"Hunter" has got its idea from one of books of Bozorg Alavi (a Persian influential writer, novelist, and political intellectual).

"It Is Winter", "Sanam" and "The Fifth Season" are among other movies of Pittes.

From Youtube: An amazing exercise in minimalist filmmaking, "The Hunter" tells the story of an Iranian man who learns that his wife and child were killed during the election violence of the past year. In his rage, the widower seeks revenge by turning his hunting rifle on the cops who killed his family. This tale of sniper examines the relationship between the Iranian people and their government in a engrossing and dramatic way. Emotionally taut, the film has earned great praise for its timely message and top-notch craftsmanship. Directed by Rafi Pitts.
