Javier Tolentino and Luis Miñarro present ‘Un Blues para Teherán’ [Tehran Blues] at Seminci

The musical documentary Un Blues para Teherán [Tehran Blues] has been presented this Wednesday, October 27th, 2021, in the Spanish Cinema section of the 66th edition of the International Film Week of Valladolid (Seminci), in a ceremony attended by the director, Javier Tolentino, and the producer Luis Miñarro, who stressed that “making a film in Iran has not been easy and that the Iranian authorities were not very sympathetic to the film.”

Un Blues para Teherán shows through the hand of a traveller who wanders through the country without a guide, letting himself be carried along random paths, discovering the lives of the people he meets along the way, how in Iran tradition and modernity coexist and confront each other in everyday life.

During the presentation ceremony, the director of the film, Javier Tolentino revealed that he wishes to obtain the Goya award for which the film has been shortlisted “to have the opportunity to show it to the true custodians of the film, which are the Iranians.” Although he also affirmed that the proposal “is a candidacy together with 14 colleagues who have also made 14 good works,” thus recognising the work of the rest of the pre-selected films.

At the end of the event, the producer said that he has “a tender relationship with this film” and that Un Blues para Teherán is a production that “treats the country with a lot of love and respect.” The documentary will be screened again on October 30th at Broadway Cinemas at 12:00 noon.
