Actress Mina Sadati, who starred in ‘Searing Summer’, receives the Best Supporting Actress award presented by actress Shu Qi at the awarding ceremony of Tiantan Award 2018 during the 8th Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF) in Beijing, capital of China, April 22, 2018. The award winners of Tiantian Award 2018 were announced during the 8th BJIFF on Sunday
‘Searing Summer’ directed by Ebrahim Irajzad, narrates the story of Nasrin, who is faced with a dilemma of either staying in an unhappy marriage, or divorcing her husband but losing custody of her daughter in the process. Instead of merely picking the less bad alternative, Nasrin makes her own way when she takes her daughter with her and moves, without her husband’s approval. But when he suddenly reappears in their lives, their situation changes dramatically.
The prize had been decided on by a jury headed by Wong Kar-wai.
Irajzad’s flick has previously taken part in the 28th edition of Stockholm Film Festival in Sweden.
