Baran Kowsari (Actress)

The daughter of Rakhshan Bani-Etemad (director) and Jahangir Kowsari (producer, journalist and soccer commentator) was very busy in the past year. She won a prize as the best actress during the 25th International Fajr Film Festival for appearing in her mother’s film, Mainline. Kowsari is one of the youngest actresses to have achieved this at the age of 21. During the same festival, The Third Day (Mohammad Hossein Latifi) was chosen as the best film, which also featured Baran Kowsari as protagonist. Her success still continues. Mainline was screened in the spring to the welcome of public audience who believed that Kowsari’s performance was a major reason for the film’s success. Although one of her films, The Magical Generation, which was finished last year, has not been publicly screened yet, The Third Day is to be screened in theaters in the near future. The film is a war movie focusing on the occupation of Abadan city in the early months of Iran-Iraq war.
