Documentaries about prominent Iranian films

As DVDs become popular in Iran and state-run television is willing to focus on prominent feature films made after the revolution, Nahid Delagah, the experienced producer of documentary films, has taken charge of producing 30 documentaries about 30 important Iranian films. She invited young documentarians to take part in this project. Their films included footages of behind the scenes, interviews with production crew, viewpoints of critics, and historical role of those films. Before Delagah, Reza Mirkarimi was in charge of this project. Major films considered in this project have been produced in the past 30 years and will be aired on the state television to mark the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution. They include, The Spell (Dariush Farhang), Transit Café (Kambozia Partovi), Carpet of the Wind (Kamal Tabrizi), The Land of the Sun (Ahmad Reza Darvish), Across the Fire (Kiyanoush Ayyari), Children of Heaven (Majid Majidi), The Last Act (Varouzh Karim-Masihi), The Runner (Amir Naderi), The Snake Fang (Massoud Kimiaei), The Red Ribbon (Ebrahim Hatami-Kia), The Blue-Veiled (Rakhshan Bani-Etemad), The Bride of Fire (Khosrow Sinai), Red (Fereidoun Jeirani), Mother (Ali Hatami), The Mare (Ali Zhakan), Homework (Abbas Kiarostami), and Nar-o-Ney (Saeed Ebrahimifar). In addition to being independent films of documentary nature which will be analyzed after each showtime on television, they can also accompany the original films on DVDs. Production of a third series of documentary films about other movies will start in a few months with Delagah as producer.
