The director said: “I selected 3 different stages of Nasser Hejazi’s life: one reviewing his days of glory, on reviewing his childhood, and another dedicated to the betrayals he faced towards the end of his career.”
Commenting on the film’s research, he added: “The research took 4 months and the legend’s family provided us with excellent and original material.”
Nima Tabatabaei had previously made From Rio to Tehran about the former Brazilian international player Jerzinho who had visited Iran a few years before.
The 9th edition of Cinema Verite will begin next week in Tehran.
