Not Likely To Receive a Wide Release

At least, not in the U.S. of A.

Battle of the Kings: Rostam and Sohrab will be screened in the United States and the United Arab Emirates within next three months, the director of Iran’s Documentary and Experimental Film Center (DEFC) Shafi Aqa Mohammadian announced.

Russia is also among the countries that bought the animation, Aqa Mohammadian noted.

Produced by Dalvand Brothers Company, the animation is based on the tragic story of ‘Rostam and Sohrab’ from the Persian epic poet Ferdowsi’s magnum opus The Shahnameh. ...

“The film was dubbed in Canada to make it comprehensible for the foreign filmgoers ...”

As I swim around the internet, I become increasingly aware that there is a LOT of animated product that never penetrates our consciousness.

Kings is one more specimen.

Someone should send "Cloud Atlas" to Canada...
