CANNES: Iranian director Mohammad Rasoulof’s A Man of Integrity is screening in Un Certain Regard in Cannes this year. The Iranian/Czech coproduction was shot in Iran with Prague based VFX and post production studio Magiclab providing post-production.
The story follows Reza a man living a simple life in a remote village in Northern Iran with his wife and child, having distanced himself from the urban quagmire. He spends his days working in his gold fish farm. Nearby, a private company with close links to the government and local authorities has taken control of nearly every aspect of the regional life. Reza strives to resist coercion and preserve his farm but soon he realises that he cannot stand up to these powerful forces.
MagicLab headed by Michal Krecek has participated in the production of more than 45 feature films and many shorts, series and commercials.
