Mr. Hekmati is appointed as a teacher in the poor south of Tehran. He falls in love with the older sister of one of the boys but she has already been promised to the local butcher. In this remarkable debut feature, major pre- and post-revolutionary director, Bahram Beyza’i creates a powerful sense of a closed community still ruled by tradition. The film has been restored with the support of Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Foundation. It was carried out by Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory in 2011. Funding provided by Doha Film Institute.
