Dhaka Int’l film fest to host ‘Holy Bread’

Iranian ‘Holy Bread’ is to compete at the 2022 Dhaka International Film Festival in Bangladesh.

Iranian documentary ‘Holy Bread’ has been selected to compete at the 20th edition of Dhaka International Film Festival in Bangladesh.

Made by the late documentarian Rahim Zabihi and produced by Touraj Aslani, the Iranian documentary is about some cross-border couriers who try to make ends meet by smuggling goods into Iran.

On foot, they carry their loads along mountain paths that are rocky, steep, and either slippery due to snow or blisteringly hot. Along the way, many of them suffer injuries, die in blizzards, or are shot by border police.

The documentary has participated in several international festivals, including the Ulju Mountain Film Festival in South Korea, the Trento Film Festival in Italy, and the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Canada.

The 20th edition of Dhaka is scheduled for January 15-23, 2022.
