TEHRAN BLUES
UN BLUES PARA TEHERAN

Director: JAVIER TOLENTINO
SPAIN
2020, 80'

Iran is presented as a country with many different faces where tradition and modernity coexist and come face to face. Through music and its peoples, our main character, Erfan, guides us to discover an unknown but sophisticated country. He is an amusing and ironic young Kurdish man who hopes to become a filmmaker. He also sings, writes poetry, lives with his parents and his parrot, but knows nothing about love…

Javier Tolentino is one of Spain’s leading journalists and film critics. He has an extensive thirty-year career linked to RNE radio’s microphones. For twenty years he has been directing the legendary program specializing in auteur film, El séptimo vicio on Radio 3. He has received awards including the Critics’ Award (2002), the San Sebastian Film Festival Award (2006) and in 2019 the Valladolid International Film Festival awarded him the «Honorary Spike» for his lifetime achievement. In addition to his work in Spanish public radio, he contributes to numerous film publications and magazines.
