Flight 175: Honoring the Martyrs of the Sacred Defense

The press conference for the movie “Flight 175” was held on Friday, February 2, 2024. It was the last film shown on the second day of the 42nd Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF).Saeed Sharafi Kia, the producer of the movie, said that all Iranians owe the martyrs as they have safeguarded the country’s security. Sacred Defense, the Iraq-Iran war in 1980-88, is of prime importance in Iranian history, the director of the film Mohammad Hossein Haghighat said. The era should not be forgotten, he said, adding that the cinematic work narrates some realities from the war. He stressed the need to reflect the stories of the martyrs through works of art. It took two years for us to write the script of the cinematic work, Haghighat pointed out. To have a well-structured script, the crew traveled to various places, he added. He went on to say that the work was produced by the private sector. Since “Flight 175” is my first feature on the Sacred Defense, the production was demanding, he underlined.
