‘Holodomor,’ directed by Raha Hajizeinal, and ‘Women’s Auschwitz,’ directed by Ali Safari, are two Iranian representatives at the Ukrainian festival. This is the first time Iranian works are invited to attend the event.
Organized by Iranian troupe Segane, Hajizeinal and Safari’s theatrical works will compete with works from Italy, Canada, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Georgia, the US and Slovakia.
The two plays are parts of a trilogy, which has been produced by Safari and Hajizeinal about World War II. ‘Berlin 10:10’ is another part of the trio.
In addition to the Golden Lion festival, Segane is scheduled to perform the works at the Theatre on Pechersk in Kiev, from October 4 to 6. The event is non-competitive.
After performance in Ukraine, the two works will be staged in Poland, Armenia and Georgia.
