First Turkish-Iranian film on screen in May
VAN – Anadolu AgencyThe first film to be jointly produced by Turkey and Iran, “Yarının Adı Başka” (Tomorrow’s Name is Different), is set to be released in May.
The film, which was mostly shot in Köprüler neighborhood in the eastern Turkish province of Van’s Edremit district, was written by Moharram Zaynalzadeh and directed by Mustafa Dalezy.
Iranian director Delazy said they had chosen Van because of its natural beauty.
“The shooting took two months and it was a big success. We shot the film with Zaynalzadeh, who also acts in it. The film is a sequel of [Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s classic 1987] film ‘The Cyclist,’ played by Zaynalzadeh. He is the lead actor in our film too. Most of the crew on set was Iranian and most actors were Turks,” Delazy said.
After six months of work, the film will be released in May, he added.
Alongside Zaynalzadeh, the film also stars actors Volkan Keskin, Zelal Dere, Fırat Tanış, Metin Keçeci and Selahattin Taşdöğen.
