YELLOW by Mostafa Taghizadeh was crowned for Two The Golden Goblet Award in Shanghai Film Festiva
Iran ArtHouse Film is proud to announce that YELLOW by Mostafa Taghizadeh was crowned for Two The Golden Goblet Award in Shanghai Film Festival by a jury chaired by Romanian Palme d’Or winner Cristian Mungiu
The Shanghai Film Festival concluded its 20th edition on 26 June. The Golden Goblet Award for The Jury Grand Prix, given out by a jury chaired by Romanian Palme d’Or winner Cristian Mungiu, was awarded to Yellow, helmed by Mostafa Taghizadeh. Yellow’s lead, Sareh Bayat, was named Best Actress.
The jury praised Mostafa Taghizadeh for his creation and announced that YELLOW grips you with its compelling study of close friends struggling to pay for a lifesaving liver transplant. Restrained, naturalistic cinematography and subtle editing keep our attention squarely on outstanding actor performances oozing with desperation, as the director explores ideas of love, loyalty and friendship as they crumble under ever more intense pressures.
