Open Arms, Focusing on Social Norms

Behrooz Shoaibi, the director of “Open Arms”, says that his latest cinematic work mainly focuses on social norms.
Shoaibi made the remarks at the press conference of “Open Arms” on February 4, on the fourth day of the 42nd Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF).
“It was a great honor to cooperate with Ali Sartipi, the movie’s producer,” the director stated.
He described the flick’s production as “a brand new experience”.
The artist went on to say that his work features a big cast and crew members, calling it “demanding”.
Commenting on the status of women in his cinematic works, Shoaibi said that they played a key role in my films.
“I preferred to make a movie that enjoys a pleasant atmosphere,” he pointed out.
“Open Arms” is under the genres of comedy and drama, he added.
The work narrates the issue of relations, he said, noting that the movie tries to lessen the bitterness of present social anomalies.
The production of the film can be considered my best achievement in the current year, he underlined.
He hailed the constructive cooperation with Sartipi as the movie’s producer.
The director further expressed satisfaction over the feedback on his film after its screening, saying the feedback was “much more than what I expected.”
“I tried to write a story for the dear audience. I had already expected good feedback, but it was far beyond my expectation.”
About his film, the director said “It was four years that I was thinking about “Open Arms.”” Then, the crew started working on it after letting the writers know about the issue, he added.
“Open Arms” is the sixth cinematic experience of Shoaibi.
Sartipi, for his part, said that the movie was funded by the private sector.
He said that the theme of the work is about family issues, expressing the hope the movie can boost the viewers’ spirits.
Presided by Mojtaba Amini, the 42nd edition of Iran’s largest annual film festival will be held from February 1-11, 2024, in Tehran.
