The Iranian film, Two, is the directorial debut of actress Soheila Golestani. The feature follows a man who returns from Germany to his native Iran to sell his former home.
Golestani previosuly starred in Today, which played at Black Nights in 2014, winning the Firpresci prize and the Ecumenical Jury Prize.
Tiina Lokk said : The way changes to ties with one’s habitat can be a source of conflict is evident in the Iranian film “Two,” also a world premiere. It is directed by the Iranian actress Soheila Golestani, who starred in the film “Today,” winner of several awards at Black Nights Film Festival last year.
