Directed by Kaveh Mazaheri, the Iranian drama will be screened at the Asian Cinema section of the 20th edition of the DIFF.
‘Botox’ is about Akram and Azar, two siblings who have lied to everyone about their brother’s disappearance. They have told others that he fled to Germany and that they have no news of him.
Gradually, the lie turns into reality in Akram’s mind. She starts to count the days for her brother to come back.
Mazaheri’s movie grabbed best screenplay and best film awards at the Torino Film Festival and best actress award at the Torino Underground Cinefest, both in Italy.
It also brought Mazaheri the first-film director award at the Fajr International Film Festival in Iran and won the award for best debut feature at the Tirana International Film Festival in Albania and received the best feature award at the Shenzhen International Film Festival in China.
