Yalda, a Night for Forgiveness

Check out a new clip from the Iranian drama Yalda, a Night for Forgiveness set to premiere via virtual cinema on December 11, 2020. Yalda, a Night for Forgiveness starring Sadaf Asgari, Behnaz Jafari, Babak Karimi, Fereshteh Sadre Orafaiy, Forough Ghajabagli, and Arman Darvish, captured the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for Drama at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

Iranian Director Massoud Bakhshi’s second dramatic effort, is set almost entirely within the studio of Iran’s most popular reality TV show, “Joy of Forgiveness”. Maryam (Sadaf Asgari) is a young woman who has been sentenced to death for murdering her husband, Nasser. Iranian law allows for the victim’s family to forgive her and spare her life, so Maryam’s fate will be decided by Nasser’s daughter, Mona (Benaz Jafari), who has always been like a big sister to her. Live, in front of the cameras and millions of viewers during Yalda, a Persian celebration of the winter solstice, Maryam and Mona discover that forgiveness can be difficult as they relive the past.
