Gholam brings together two prominent Iranian actors, Behrouz Behnejad and Shahab Hosseini. Inspired by an enigmatic Iranian exile, Gholam is the story of one man’s search for a sense of purpose in an alien environment – a man with no expectations who has been through a revolution, a war and a change of landscape. Gholam will be screened at the East End Film Festival in London.
The making of Gholam was supported by IHF.
