“Walnut Tree” was available online and for free on Telobion Plus from April 25, 1401. The series “Your Excellency” is also being broadcast for free on TV these days and is being advertised on TV. These unequal competitive conditions have led to protests from other Internet systems.
“Walnut Tree” by Mohammad Hossein Mahdavian was made in 2009 and screened at the 38th Fajr Film Festival. The film premiered last year and sold 167,000 tickets.
The story of the walnut tree is narrated in three periods of 1987, 2005 and 2016, and based on the life story of Qader Molanpour, one of the villagers of Sardasht, who loses his family in the chemical bombing tragedy.
Of course, the film does not have a specific geography and Iran’s name is not highlighted in it. Even at the beginning of the film, it is stated that the bombing was accidental and the pilot dropped the bomb aimlessly for a safe landing. The combination of these points caused the “walnut tree” to face serious criticism from some media and critics.
It is now possible to watch the movie “Walnut Tree” online on the Telobion website without the need for a subscription or ticket fee.
