(ANSA) - San Sebastian, September 27 - Italian actress
Monica Bellucci premiered Thursday at the San Sebastian Film
Festival in Spain with Bahman Ghobadi's Iranian production Rhino
Season, where the screen beauty is portrayed for the first time
as a devastated woman.
The red carpet presentation for the feature film was
scrapped due to protests related to cuts in government funds in
the region.
Rhino Season is the tale of a tragic love story set between
Tehran prior to the 1979 Islamic revolution and Istanbul today.
The film is based on the Kurdish poet Sadegh Kamangar, who
was arrested and sentenced to 30 years in jail.
Once incarcerated, his first task is that of looking for
his wife Mina.
"For the first time, I felt very distant from my culture,
because it wasn't a European or an American film," said
Bellucci.
"I took part in it because I felt curiosity towards
Iranian culture and towards new directors such as (Abbas)
Kiarostami.
"For them, filmmaking is a form of combat.
"For an Iranian actress, it would have been impossible to
do this film and then to go back home".
