Sun Children’ set to world premiere at the Venice Film Festival

The Iranian film “Sun Children” directed by Majid Majidi has been accepted in the competition section of the Venice Film Festival in Italy.

The 77th Venice Film Festival in Italy has awarded Rouhollah Zamani, young actor of Iran’s ‘Sun Children’.Zamani received Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress at the Venezia 77 section of the Italian event. Made by Iranian filmmaking master Majid Majidi, ‘Sun Children’ tells the story of four young friends.They work quite hard to financially support their needy families while they sometimes commit petty crimes to make easy money. This is the story of 12-year-old Ali and his three friends. Together they work hard to survive and support their families, doing small jobs in a garage and committing petty crimes to make fast money. In a turn of events that seems miraculous, Ali is entrusted to find a hidden treasure underground. He recruits his gang, but first, to gain access to the tunnel, the children must enroll at the Sun School, a charitable institution that tries to educate street kids and child laborers, close to where the treasure is located. International organizations are waging a desperate fight to support these young people who are subjected to abuse and deprived of their human right to education. The message of the film is that we are all responsible to these children, many of whom are extremely talented and all of whom are precious. It is simply not tolerable that their social and economic status consign them to a future of limited opportunities and poor prospects. Khorshid demonstrates the abilities and humanity of these children. Our main juvenile actors were all child labourers and all proved to be astonishing and extremely intelligent performers.
