Iran’s Muhammad shown in Moscow cinema

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iran’s Muhammad: The Messenger of Gid by Majid Majidi was showcased in Moscow.

The film was screened in a cinema in presence of Majidi and Iran’s Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanaie with Russian subtitling.

Majidi has said the aim of his film is removing the “violent image” of Islam created by Takfiri groups.

A number of internationally-acclaimed cinematic figures, including Academy Award winning visual effects supervisor and filmmaker Scott E. Anderson, three-time Oscar-winning Italian director of photography Vittorio Storaro and renowned Croat production designer Milijen Kreka Kljakovic, cooperated in making the film; and Academy Award-winning Indian music composer Allah-Rakha Rahman has also composed the music for the movie.
