Iranian director makes drama on ISIL cruelties

Iranian filmmaker Abbas Rafei has created a cinematic production on the cruelty of the Takfiri ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

Entitled “Songs of My Homeland,” the tragedy is a blend of a true story in Syria and the crimes of the Takfiri terrorists in the region.

The film, set in the central Syrian town of Rablah, depicts a man and a woman who are preparing to hold their wedding ceremony, when the ISIL forces attack the town, kidnapping the bride and a number of other women.

Some parts of the film were shot in Lebanon and Syria, Rafei said.

The film is scheduled to premiere at the 33rd Fajr International Film Festival, which will be held in Tehran in February 2015.

Born in 1962, Rafei has directed and produced a number of cinematic productions, several of which have been screened at international events.

He also served as a juror at the 2013 South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) International Film Festival in Sri Lanka.

Iran has produced several documentaries on the crimes of the Takfiri militants.

The militants have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations, against Iraqi and Syrian communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
