‘London Stories’ is another family project for the Makhmalbaf’s – Hana directed while her brother Maysem is credited as producing. The Makhmalbaf family and their Makhmalbaf Film House company have been largely based in London since the presidency of Mahmoud Ahmedinejad in their native Iran in 2005. Hana’s father Mohsen Makhmalbaf last year presented his ‘The President’ at Busan and gave the keynote speech at the academic BIFF Forum.
Now in its 18th year, the co-production market will showcase 30 projects from 15 countries including the UK, China, Vietnam and Iraq.
APM will run Oct 4-6 at the BEXCO in Busan during the film festival which will run Oct 1-10.
