The films will hit the theaters across the country on Saturday.

The selection includes Bahram Tavakkoli’s Gholamreza Takhti, a movie about the life story of Iranian Olympic gold-medalist wrestler Gholamreza Takhti.

Takhti, whose manly virtue and social activities during the 1960s made him a national hero, was found dead at a hotel room in Tehran in 1968, and the Persian dailies Kayhan and Ettelaat reported that he has committed suicide for his unhappy domestic life. However, a large group of people also believed that he was killed by the SAVAK intelligence services due to his disloyalty to the Shah regime.

The acclaimed movie 6.5 for One Meter by Saeid Rustai, a creative effort to depict the horrible image of narcotics, is also included.

Also included are White-Forehead Deer by Javad Hashemi, The Prisoners by Masud Dehnamaki, Rahman 1400 by Manuchehr Hadi, Four-Fingered by Hamed Mohammadi and Pig Genes by Saeid Soheili.
