TEHRAN, May 16 (MNA) -- Iranian director Asghar Farhadi's acclaimed
film "Chaharshanbeh -Suri" was recently screened at the Yerevan Puppet
Theatre in Armenia, the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization
announced on Monday.

Several Iranian and Armenian students along with some of the film's
cast and crew attended the event.

Starring Iranian superstar Hedyeh Tehrani along with Hamid Farrokhnejad
and Taraneh Alidusti, "Chaharshanbeh-Suri" is about a family in
which the wife doubts her husband's loyalty. Everything seems to
indicate that the wife suffers from melancholia, but things turn
out differently.

best editing, and best actress at the 24th Fajr International Film
Festival. The film also won the audience favorite award at the
festival, which was held in Tehran in late January.
